It is early days to say that. Part of the response to this is that two reports have been commissioned. The HSE commissioned a report for its board from consultants. There is also a report into the origins of this and exactly what happened. It is being compiled by an international security company, Mandiant. That will also provide information. At the same time, an investigation by An Garda Síochána is taking place. I am limited in what I can say. An Garda Síochána knows when the network was penetrated and how it happened. Much forensic information has been gathered by An Garda Síochána. I expect those reports to be published shortly. They will be used to inform the HSE of the lessons that should be learned from this attack.
