Featured Campaign from Leeds City Council

Managing Information security risks during Coronavirus

Mitigating risks to information security during lockdown… 

Many staff have had to adapt to new ways of working in response to the current Covid-19 situation, which has seen increased home working as staff adjust or take on new roles. Working practices have had to change in response, changes which bring about new opportunities, but also risks.

Local authorities can do a lot to help their staff understand and mitigate risks by raising awareness of data protection issues associated with home working and the importance of being extra vigilant during this time.

Leeds City Council can provide a ‘peace of mind’ solution through its online data protection e-Learning course suitable for all staff. The e-Learning course includes modules, assessments and guidance on home working, creating strong passwords, reporting incidents and measures to prevent data breaches.

Now is a key time for managers to review current training and identify new online training courses which will help improve skills and expertise, particularly in relation to information security and data protection. If you would like further information from Leeds City Council on the data protection e-Learning courses available, please email IG Solutions at Leeds City Council,  IGSolutions@leeds.gov.uk
