The independent watchdog for immigration has warned that Border Force could face a similar fallout to the Metropolitan Police if insider threats are not addressed by the Home Office. The watchdog criticised the Home Office for redacting over 100 pieces of information from a report on the risks of corrupt Border Force staff. The watchdog argued that the extensive removal of material from the report did not meet the high threshold of national security. The report highlighted concerns about a dissatisfied workforce and the potential for insider acts enabled by privileged access. Recommendations were made for improvements in processes, data sharing, and training. The Home Office has partially accepted two recommendations and fully accepted six others. The report warned of reputational damage if the risks are not addressed.
