The Department for International Development has no current plans to build new databases containing personal information.
We do expect to replace existing databases used for internal administration of human resources and correspondence within the next five years.
It is not in the interests of the UK’s national security for departments to confirm information on the number of attempts, successful or otherwise, to gain unauthorised access to departmental systems or databases. Such disclosure could undermine the integrity and security of departmental systems and thereby expose them to potential threats.
The Department for International Development complies with the mandatory requirements of the security policy framework in relation to information security including managing the risk of unauthorised access to ICT systems.
