ICT published information

Disclosure exemptions

Having carefully considered the matter, the Council has determined that some details of our ICT systems are exempt from disclosure under the following provisions of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

The exemption has been applied where an * is shown.

Section 43: Commercial interests

This exemption applies because the disclosure of the information would be likely to prejudice the commercial interests of the Council as divulging information about our systems setup may facilitate a crafted attack.

Knowledge of the specifics of systems (e.g. which O/S is being used; makes and models of firewalls etc.) simplifies the task of an attacker, and allows that person to tailor their attack method to suit the potential vulnerabilities of that particular system.

Whilst members of the public are entitled to know what systems the Council purchases using public funds, the Council needs to ensure the integrity of its systems is not compromised.

In view of the personal and sensitive nature of the data held in our systems and the benefit knowledge of the specific systems would have to an attacker, it is not in the public interest to disclose the information.
