Please note that after considering the request, we have decided that we need to issue a refusal notice under Section 31 (1)(a) of the FOI Act. Section 31 (1)(a) provides for an exemption when the disclosure of the requested information would be likely to prejudice the prevention or detection of crime. Following the Prejudice Test and aPublic Interest Test, we have concluded that providing details of our IT security systems creates a risk of substantial harm being caused by those systems being compromised.

Given the potential impact of any compromise to our IT security systems, it is also concluded that the public interest in preventing this prejudice, outweighs the public interest in its disclosure.
