No Minister

MIND BOGGLING INCOMPETENCE … OR WORSE

The revelation here at https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/125180968 that the Government abandoned moves to protect the Waikato DHB (and others) from cyber attacks citing budget constraints. The result … Waikato Hospital paralysed.

And further that key parts of the Government’s cybersecurity strategy have not been implemented two years after the strategy document was published. Promised actions included an action plan and an annual report. The minister responsible for the cybersecurity strategy, ​Kris Faafoi, left the role in November last year. His successor, ​David Clark, admits no annual cybersecurity report from the 2019 strategy document was ever produced. However, he promises a report will be produced for the 2022 financial year.

Promises by Clark, who resigned his Health portfolio, hardly engender confidence.

What a cock-up. New Zealand, the way you’ve got it.
