Written answers (Question to Defence)

I am informed by the military authorities that the Defence Forces networks are secured on a 24/7 basis.

From an operational and security perspective it would be inappropriate to comment further on the cyber and network security capabilities of the Defence Forces other than to say that there is on-going and continued development of these capabilities within the Defence Forces.
