Case Study
Bradford City Council
Data's role in public services
Local Government's role in data protection

The sector operates in an environment driven by data, employee and the public’s data, and data is integral to the success of the services it delivers. The volume and complexity of data across the sector continue to grow in physical and digital form.

Often confronted with limited resources, limited skills, legacy systems and technologies, the sector finds managing and protecting its data challenging.  However, the sector’s data is its lifeblood. It is the basis on which decisions are made, policies are created and communicated, and services are provided.

Opportunistic criminal attacks, well-funded nation-state attacks, as well as accidental internal risks by employees, threaten the sector daily.

Managing data appropriately and in a secure and compliant way is pivotal to ensure unfailing services and public safety is never impacted.

The sector is seen as an easy target for cybercrime as public services often have gaps in their security and vulnerable systems. Additionally, the quantity of data available is vast, and the data is valuable, and much of it is personal.

The scale of the data protection challenge is massive. To protect the data and keep ahead of cybercriminals and thwart data loss and data incidences. However, the consequences of not adequately securing and managing the data are even more significant. As the mishandling of data can threaten the security and privacy of the public and result in the disruption of public services which can have a broad impact on the public as well as the nation.

The security of the information processed by the sector is its responsibility. Data management and protection are essential to ensure the data is available, reliable and its integrity is upheld for the sector to operate effectively and comply with its statutory responsibilities.
