What is a cyber attack?

A cyber-attack is a crime that targets computer systems and networks in an attempt to access, expose, destroy and/or steal information.

A cyber-attack can present itself in the form of a disguised fraudulent email (known as ‘phishing’), a malicious link or email attachment or a computer virus.

How can a cyber-attack affect my Council?

A cyber incident can be very disruptive to the running of Council services, leading to the loss of sensitive data, reputational issues and/or financial repercussions.

Severe consequences can include operational downtime and even the potential for closure of the Council.
