Risk to national security seen in outsourcing at Hungarian military intelligence

It was not only the National Security Office whose data was allowed to get into the hands of outsider enterprises during the former government, but civilian companies could operate at military secret services as well, writes news portal index.hu, in relation to the recent arrests of former spy chiefs.

The portal learned that the defense ministry had carried out an internal investigation to determine whether outsourced services could mean a national security risk. The ministry confirmed it had examined old contracts signed by military secret services but would not reveal results of the investigation. However, it is known that Zömök Kft. – the company linked to the arrests – had no relation to the soldiers.

The ministry wrote to the portal that currently, a civilian company which could mean a national security risk due to its activities or employees could not get into the system.
