Written answers (Question to Culture)

My Department’s ICT unit has dedicated, professionally trained ICT security staff who are responsible for the management and oversight of ICT security systems which mitigate the risks of cybersecurity breaches. The Department maintains a security breach register where any breaches are analysed by the ICT security team and also escalated to supporting ICT security vendors where required.
