Heathrow’s security secrets at the edge of the road  

The most bizarre secrets of security measures at Heathrow Airport in London were the computer external storage media found on a North London street.

The pendrive was handed over to the Sunday left-wing British newspaper Sunday Mirror by a resident, a local resident.
According to the report, there were 76 dossiers of secret data in the storage. The pendrive illustrated, among other things, with accurate maps, that II. Queen Elizabeth and her escort will approach Heathrow when traveling somewhere, and when they arrive, what security measures are taking place at the airport.
Although 91-year-old royalties are no longer in business, the pendrive contains similar confidential security planning plans in case high-ranking government officials or foreign state executives and high-ranking officials turn up at Heathrow.
It is also possible to find out the patrol schedule of the security units protecting the terrorist attacks from the huge airport at the western end of London and the exact identity identifiers needed for access to each closed area of the airport.
Clicked on the pendrive maps it shows the exact location of the closed-circuit surveillance cameras installed at the airport and its vicinity, the London expressway and Heathrow Express quarter-hour express train, the Heathrow Express tunnel network, and a detailed description of the ultrasound radar system that tracks the airstrips and external security fences.
According to the Sunday Mirror report, the USB port had 2.5 gigabytes of data, largely without password protection.
Heathrow spokesman on Sunday announced that the airport had revised its security measures and conducted an internal investigation to find out how confidential information could be avoided in an unprotected container.
Heathrow, which is the busiest European airport in the world, came last year to 75.7 million passengers, tens of millions more in the UK as a whole.
It’s not the first such incident in Britain.
A few years ago, “Top Secret”, that is, super-violent governmental writings were left on the train by a forgotten British official.
The seven-page report on the orange envelope contained the most recent British intelligence assessments of al-Qaida terrorist organization and the preparedness of Iraqi security forces.
Intelligence and Counseling Services, and the Joint Terrorism Analysis Center (JTAC), conducted by the heads of the Terrorist Department of Scotland Yard, were provided with a separate encryption seal and, in principle, could only be in the hands of designated intelligence officers.
The envelope, however, was discovered by a passenger in London Waterloo Railway Station at a train stall, who was so honored that he had provided the highly sensitive intelligence material to the BBC, which handed over the dossier to Scotland Yard without explaining its contents.
