Publication date: May 2015

Outcome:

Hello, I’m looking for the list of HMG Senior Information Risk Officers (SIROs) and have been told it is held by The National Archives. Is it available on your site? I haven’t been able to find it. Thanks.

Response:

Dear [name retracted],

Thank you for your enquiry of 11 May in which you asked for the following information:

I’m looking for the list of HMG Senior Information Risk Officers (SIROs) and have been told it is held by The National Archives. Is it available on your site? I haven’t been able to find it.

The National Archives does not hold or maintain a list of HMG Senior Information Risk Officers (SIROs). We hold details of individuals who have previously attended SIRO training at The National Archives and have registered an interest in receiving training newsletters.

Government departments are responsible for maintaining a list of SIROs within their own organisations. Those government departments where you have a query will be able to help you if you contact them directly. Contact details for all departments can be found on the GOV.UK website. Alternatively, you may wish to contact the Cabinet Office, who have central responsibility for the Office of the Government SIRO, who may be able to provide further information.

I am sorry not to have been able to be of more assistance on this occasion.

If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request or the decision which has been reached, you have the right to ask for an internal review.  Internal review requests must be submitted within two months of the date of this response and should be addressed to:

Please mark your complaint clearly.  You have the right to ask the Information Commissioner (ICO) to investigate any aspect of your complaint.  However, please note that the ICO is likely to expect internal complaints procedures to have been exhausted before beginning his investigation.
