Cyber Security Review

Both the Scottish Government and UK Government have Cyber Security strategies that set expectations for local government in Scotland.


Our Cyber Security Review aims to provide a joined up and consistent approach to both the UK and Scottish Cyber Resilience Strategies across the Local Government Digital Partnership. We will seek to benchmark practices across the sector, developing a joined-up action plan for improving cyber security at a sector level in line with UK and Scottish action plans.


The project will offer up a set of recommendations for improving cyber security practices, developing a set of actions specific to Local Government Research and Innovation.
