To ask the Scottish Government how many Freedom of Information responses it has provided in each of the last five years that included information from encrypted apps on mobile devices.

Answered by: Kate Forbes 2 August 2018

There is no requirement under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act for public authorities to record the source of data for an FOI request.

Scottish Government encrypted corporate apps access data from the Scottish Government’s IT network. Data held on the Scottish Government corporate IT network - and all our business communications, including any held on mobile devices - are subject to FOI.
