DWP takes the security of its data very seriously and actively monitors systems to ensure payments are accurate. Where issues are identified, appropriate actions are taken. Revealing details of DWP monitoring capabilities in public, would likely prejudice the capability, effectiveness and ability to strongly preserve those systems. In order to safeguard our benefit payment and processing systems we are unable to provide the information requested.
