From: Patrick Conheady

Delivered

Dear Australian Taxation Office,

On 19 February, you refused an FOI request by me in relation to SQL queries used to extract statistics related to penalties for the Inspector-General of Taxation (your reference 1-7N10Z46).

In your refusal letter, you refer to the release of the SQL queries as posing a risk to the security of the ATO's IT systems.

Please provide documents containing the expert IT security advice that informed this decision.

Yours faithfully,

Patrick Conheady

Dear Mr Conheady,

 

Re: FOI request for IT security advice regarding sql queries

 

In our initial decision for this request we inadvertently released some
names and titles of officers which should not have been released. We have
now made a revised decision for this request. Please find the revised
decision and documents attached.

 

Kind Regards
