My Department views ICT security as being of central importance in ensuring the security and integrity of systems, files and data. Working with the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), an operational arm of the Department of Communication, Climate Action and Environment, my Department ensures that we are aware of the latest threats and necessary actions are taken to offset risks to the Department's ICT facilities.

My Department has deployed various market leading, latest generation ICT security systems and tools to ensure that the risk of attacks are mitigated as effectively as possible.

 For security reasons, my Department does not provide public details of our cyber security management.
