Dear Ms Moody

Thank you for your request for information regarding malicious emails sent to the department. We have attempted to respond with the information that we hold that we believe meets your requirements.

Like most businesses we monitor threats to our cyber security and take active steps to protect our business and staff from malicious emails and ransomware attacks. We can confirm that this type of activity is regularly experienced. We are unable to provide detailed answers to your query as we believe that the information could be used by threat actors to ascertain our capabilities and preparedness to withstand attacks of this type. The Freedom of Information Act Section 24, National Security and Section 31.1 Law Enforcement allow us to exempt this type of information from public disclosure.

In accordance with our processes for managing FoI requests, if you are unhappy with the way your request for information has been handled, you can request Magnox carry out an internal review. In the first instance contact [email address]. If you remain dissatisfied with the handling of your request or complaint you have a right to appeal to the Information Commissioner at: Ico.org.uk.
