FOIREQUEST(LPT) (LINCOLNSHIRE PARTNERSHIP NHS FOUNDATION TRUST), Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

Dear Ms Kovacs,

Further to your Freedom of Information Request, as per your original email, our response from Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust is as follows:

The Trust has implemented Section 31(1)(a) of the Freedom of Information Act 2002, which will cover all aspects of the prevention and detection of crime. Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (LPFT) has considered that disclosure of this information would assist a hacker in gaining valuable information as to the nature of its systems, defences, and possible vulnerabilities, now or in the future. To provide this information is likely to enable hackers to obtain information in mosaic form combined with other information to enable them to gain greater insight than they would ordinarily have, which would facilitate the commissioning of crime such as hacking itself and fraud. This would have an impact on LPFT’s operations including front-line services. The prejudice in complying with section 31(1)(a) FOIA is real and significant as to provide this data would allow valuable insight into LPFT’s ICT systems. Therefore LPFT’s position is that complying with this request would be likely to prejudice the prevention or detection of crime, as the information could assist those who want to attack LPFT ICT systems.

If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the right to request for an internal review. Internal review requests should be submitted within two months of the date of receipt of the response to your original letter and should be addressed to: FOI Department, Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, Trust Headquarters, Long Leys Road, Lincoln, Lincolnshire LN1 1FS. If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at: Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.

Kind regards
