Downing Street says it is to review security procedures after a hoax caller was put through to Prime Minister David Cameron.
Number 10 said the caller claimed to be Robert Hannigan, director of government monitoring agency GCHQ.
Mr Cameron ended the call when it became clear it was a hoax and no sensitive information was disclosed.
A Government spokesman said: 'Following two hoax calls to Government departments today, a notice has gone out to all departments to be on the alert for such calls.
'In the first instance, a call was made to GCHQ which resulted in the disclosure of a mobile phone number for the director.
