Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport
National Cyber Security Centre Review: Discussion
The point was on the process whereby there would be a direction with all Departments about investing in cybersecurity. I would add that the Estimates process is ongoing. The Minister of State is at the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform as well as the Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications. I would have thought it would have been relatively straightforward to insist each Department put what it is spending on cybersecurity in as a specific item. That might enable the Minister of State to gather that information and come back to us.
