Improving cyber health and resilience in local government
The Local Digital Declaration includes a commitment to the continuous improvement of cyber security practice, to support the security, resilience and integrity of our digital services and systems.
In the Autumn 2021 Budget, Local Digital was awarded £37.8 million of additional funding to tackle cyber security challenges facing councils and invest in local authority cyber resilience, protecting vital services and data.
As part of this, the Local Digital Cyber team is conducting two programmes of work with local authorities—Cyber Support and Cyber Assessment—to reduce the incidence and impact of cyber attacks, and support sustainable cyber risk management.
