Soca have confirmed that their website continues to be offline following a hacking attempt.
A spokesman stressed that the attack did not pose any operational threat.
The action was taken to limit the impact of a DDOS attack on other clients hosted by our service provider.
Soca's website contains only publicly available information and does not provide access to operational material.
DDOS attacks cause temporary inconvenience to website visitors but they do not pose any security risk to the organisation.
Soca does not consider it to be a proportionate response, or a responsible use of taxpayers' money, to maintain excessive bandwidth on the off-chance of a DDOS attack on a public-facing website.
