For reasons of operational and national security it would not be appropriate to disclose details, including costs, of my Department’s cyber security arrangements, or those of State offices, agencies and bodies under my remit. Any information in relation to cyber security tools and services could assist criminals in identifying potential vulnerabilities in cybersecurity arrangements. Therefore it is not considered appropriate to disclose any such information or make comment which could in any way compromise my Department’s cyber security.
