Dutch MPs, govt members must take encrypted phone for state visits

Monday 22 January 2018 | 16:48 CET | News
Dutch MPs and other members of government going on a work trip abroad are increasingly required to leave their own telephone or smartphone at home and to bring an extra secured telephone from the Military Intelligence and Security Service (MIVD), De Telegraaf reported. This is especially the case with work visits to countries such as China, Russia and Iran. It is forbidden for government members to bring their own telephone or smartphone in order to prevent these devices from being hacked and used for espionage purposes.
