Companies House

Volume 454: debated on Thursday 14 December 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many attempts to gain unauthorised access to the computer systems of Companies House have (a) been detected and (b) succeeded in each of the last five years. (108320)

Over the last five years there have been no successful attempts to gain unauthorised access to Companies House computer systems.

It is difficult to put a figure against the number of unauthorised access attempts. On average 200,000 internet connections are rejected by our firewall per day.
