Volume 704: debated on Thursday 16 October 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

For each department in the last two years, what information has been lost or illegally accessed as a result of e-crime. [HL5206]

It is not in the interest of UK national security, or that of the public, to disclose detailed information pertaining to e-crime attacks on government. Disclosing such information would enable criminals and those who would attempt to cause disruptive threats to the UK to deduce how to conduct attacks and therefore potentially enhance their capability to carry out such attacks.
