UK NACE- Our story

UK NACE- Our story

The role of the UK National Authority for Counter Eavesdropping (UK NACE) is to ensure that the most sensitive classified areas within the UK Government are protected from hostile spying technology.

We are the lead government organisation in the field of Technical Security across the UK Government, mandated by the Cabinet Office to carry out this work. Technical Security is personnel, information, physical and cyber security combined.

For obvious reasons, there’s a lot of our work that we can’t talk about. But there are a few things we can share to give you a glimpse of the vital work we are doing to protect the UK from technical espionage attacks.

Shortly after World War 2 when it became clear that there was a need to protect British Embassies located in the newly formed Communist Eastern Europe from the threat of technical espionage attack.

In a letter dated September 1945, Ernest Bevan, the then Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, agreed to second a group of Post Office engineers to the Diplomatic Wireless Service based at Hanslope Park in Buckinghamshire. The letter said that the new recruits would undertake “conservative electrical maintenance” on the telephone and telegraphy systems in missions abroad and “some preventative work such as anti-eavesdropping”.

Just a month later, the newly formed group of engineers had their first find - 26 microphones discovered hidden in the British Embassy in Moscow!

The following year, a further 24 Post Office Engineers were seconded to the Foreign Office as the “Foreign Office Maintenance Engineers Service”. This service was subsequently integrated with the Diplomatic Wireless Service. The early work of these engineers in counter-eavesdropping would set the tone for the way our organisation would work in the years ahead.

In 1958 the Cabinet Office acknowledged that the now titled Foreign Service Technical Maintenance Service (FSTMS); ”… are the only UK department who have the authority, skill and knowledge to undertake security searches and are the UK authority on counter eavesdropping”.

Now known as UK NACE, we are located at Hanslope Park in Buckinghamshire; London and UK missions overseas.

Since 2008 we’ve been part of the Foreign Office or Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office to give its full title – within FCDO Services. We’ve been able to broaden the services we provide to other government departments, to defence, law enforcement and industry, in addition to our overseas embassies.

Today, as a National Technical Authority and through our Academy, we continue to give expert guidance to government partners and provide training and mentoring to our national and international partners.
