IT Web Perimeter

1. How many websites and/or microsites make up your web perimeter? 4

2. How many web applications on your website collect Personal Identifiable Information? None

3. How often do you scan your web perimeter?

The Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is withholding the requested information under exemption Section 24 (1) – National Security of the Freedom of Information Act.  Section 24 is a qualified exemption and the Trust is required to assess as objectively as possible whether the balance of public interest favours disclosing or withholding the information. The Trust acknowledges that there is a general public interest in disclosure.  However, the view of the Trust  that Section 24 exemption pertains to the above question is based on the judgement that by  providing the specific information requested would not only highlight the Trust’s policy relating to website security scanning but would also provide information which could be used to exploit any vulnerabilities which could potentially endanger national security.
