Henry Morcambe and his team attempt to infiltrate Belgacom, a major phone network of a European ally.
This is a true story, based on documents released by Ed Snowden, and looks at GCHQ’s involvement in one of the most sophisticated and outrageous hacks mounted by a nation state.
Inside GCHQ agents are monitoring delegates of the G20 summit when they discover a cyber-attack targeting the UK National Grid. The attack is highly sophisticated and from an unknown source.

Henry and his team attempt to find out, needing to deploy ever more creative ways of monitoring their targets.
