News review – Tuesday 17 April 2018

Russia Telegraph Fears are growing that Russia, in retaliation for the missile strike on Syria over the weekend, is gearing up to conduct a major cyber assault on Britain. Just days after the attack, the threat of a crippling attack from Russia is now at its “highest possible level” the National Cyber Security Centre has warned.
