Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport
National Cyber Security Centre Review: Discussion
None of the tech giants has contacted me, either directly or indirectly, to comment on the attack on the HSE attack or to express their concerns about it. We have a co-operative relationship with those companies. I have no sense they are suffering from dissatisfaction with the State in any way. They need us and we need them. There is a relationship there whereby we hire third-party and private companies to help us with work, but they need the State's assistance as well.
