Written answers (Question to Environment)

I refer to my reply to Question 210 of 18th May 2021 in which I provided details on the number of data breaches experienced by my Department since 2018. All data breaches are reported to and assessed by the Department’s Data Protection Officer (DPO) in accordance with  Articles 33-34 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and guidance issued by the Data Protection Commission.

For operational and security reasons, it is not considered appropriate to disclose any further details of the nature of breaches experienced by my Department.
