About the Cyber Support team

A Cyber Support team is providing expertise and support to identify issues and gaps in local authority cyber security.

We are providing guidance, tools and good practice, and helping councils to develop a roadmap for cyber enhancement. This will increase their resilience against ransomware attacks. It will also help cyber security professionals within local authorities to communicate with, and get future budget and priority, from senior leaders.
