Dear Marianne,

 

REQUEST ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

 

The sophisticated criminal cyberattack on Christmas Eve 2020 has had a
major impact on the way SEPA works. We are working through all the
services that we provide to understand what we need to do in the short and
longer term to restore services. We are approaching this work with a sense
of urgency.

 

What we are able to do now

 

Following the cyber attack, our information and email systems remain
impacted and in some instances offline. Our offices remain closed due to
COVID 19 restrictions so we continue to be unable to provide copies of our
hard copy information.

 

As a result, we are limited in our ability to respond to Access to
Information enquiries. We will provide advice and assistance to you as
best we are able but may not be able to provide the information you are
looking for at this time.

 

We continue to keep the Scottish Information Commissioner updated about
our service status.

or search our [2]Disclosure Log for information we’ve already published

Disclosure Log by entering a key search word in the Title box and clicking

You can also check [3]Scotland’s Environment website. This website brings
together environmental information and data in one place so that is easy
