Correction to GCSB 2012/13 Annual Report
In the Government Communications Security Bureau’s Annual Report for the year
ended 30 June 2013, there are errors on page 22 of the report relating to the number of warrants and authorisations.
The error is because of record keeping and we reported the number of operations
rather than the number of warrants. This means if there was more than one warrant or authorisation for an operation
there has been an under count.
The GCSB Annual Report reported warrants and authorisations and actual warrants and authorisations are as follows: WarrantsAuthorisationsIn force7 / 1114 / 26Issued4 / 59 / 11
An erratum has been issued, and the Inspector General of Intelligence and Security has been informed.
