Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation
David Stanton (Cork East, Fine Gael)
Over the weekend, the Chief of Staff of the Defence Forces said Ireland is in the front line of a cyberwar. Yesterday saw the publication of the electronic communication security measures for consultation by the Government and the Government also endorsed the EU toolbox on 5G cybersecurity, so there are clear issues of security here. Has the Taoiseach confidence in the security of our mobile telephone networks? Has he confidence in his own mobile phone and those of Ministers, decision-makers and other people of interest here? How long will it take to update the security in this area given we are about two years behind other countries in this regard?
