Article 42 Law enforcement
Information is qualified exempt information if its disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice –
a) the prevention, detection or investigation of crime, whether in Jersey or elsewhere;
It is recognised that there is a public interest in providing information in a transparent manner, however this public interest is not considered to outweigh the interests of the government in preventing cyber-crime. It is considered that release of this information may increase risks, particularly in view of major cyber-attacks that have occurred in other jurisdictions in recent years.
The Government of Jersey continuously assesses risk to its network and technical infrastructure and manages a risk treatment plan to ensure every effort is made to maintain a secure and reliable service for its staff and users of its services.
