The term of the Acting Director of the Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB), Una Jagose, has been extended to 31 March 2016.

The Minsiter Responsible for the GCSB, Christopher Finlayson, says the Government has decided not to continue with the State Services Commission's current recruitment process and instead to extend Ms Jagose's appointment as Acting Director.

A former Deputy Solicitor-General, Ms Jagose has been Acting Director of the GCSB since 28 February 2015. She was admitted as a barrister and solicitor of the High Court in July 1990.
