Cyber security and ransomware attacks on public sector organisations are becoming more and more common. And local authorities are under increasing pressure to ensure that they have the necessary technical safeguards in place to maintain the security of personal data.

Cyber Security in Local Government, a satellite event at ShareDigital, brings together those responsible for ensuring the security of IT services within local authorities.

It has been estimated that 75% of councils have experienced a cyber attack over the last year, with a consequent risk of the loss of sensitive data and disruption to the delivery of public services, together with significant financial costs.

So how well is your council prepared to deal with the threat of cyber attacks? And how can the cyber security lessons learned at other local authorities help you improve your own safeguards?

The annual ShareDigital networking forum provides an opportunity for digital champions to meet-up to share experiences and discuss common challenges faced. If you are interested in speaking at Cyber Security in Local Government, please get in touch with John Neame via
