Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport
National Cyber Security Centre Review: Discussion
The Minister of State may have misinterpreted what I said. The report itself was very complimentary to the staff in the NCSC but certainly pointed out deficiencies in its structure, that the centre did not have legislation to underpin its operations, did not have a single headquarter facility, and had both advisory and regulatory roles. The report said that the staff are fit for purpose but structurally the NCSC, in its current form and in terms of what we will face in the future, was not fit for purpose. Is that a fair comment?
