We are saddened to announce that Sir Patrick Walker, Director General of MI5 between 1988-1992, died on 13 October following a long illness.
October is Black History Month - an annual celebration of the history and contributions of Black people in the UK. MI5 is proud to be an employer who celebrates and champions diversity and so throughout October we have a month of events planned for our staff.
For the sixth year in a row, MI5 is marking National Inclusion Week, to highlight the importance of inclusion across the UK. As a visible display of our commitment to inclusion, we’ll be flying our Inclusion Flag above our London headquarters for the whole week.
To pay our respects, MI5 is flying the UK and US flags together in the entrance of Thames House, our London HQ
MI5 Director General Ken McCallum gave his annual threat update at Thames House on 14 July 2021.
