Public Accounts Committee
Financial Statement 2020 and Related Matters: HSE (Resumed)
Mr. Paul Reid:
Windows 7 was not a contributor to the attack. It was completely separate from Windows 7. However, I fully accept that Windows 7 is an exposure for us. The ultimate target date, as I mentioned, is for the replacement of the approximately 12,000 national incident management system, NIMS, units and that will be in 2022. We expect to have the rest of them out in a much shorter period. We can provide the committee an update note on that and on the support arrangement with Microsoft.
