What is Councillor Protect?
Councillor Protect is the package of software, training and support that best protects you, your laptop or desktop and your mobile phone. It is designed for individuals working solo without any central IT infrastructure.
Why do I need Councillor Protect?
As a councillor you need your own equipment to carry out Party business. But your information is no less sensitive than council information. You handle information on local residents and colleague councillors all of which is personal.
The software we deploy is designed to give you the best possible protection. It significantly reduces the likelihood of a successful virus and unlike other software for laptops and desktops can even prevent a never been seen before cyber-attack from affecting you. In fact our chosen laptop protection will even stop malware from affecting you even if it does get on to your laptop.
It is still possible for you to suffer from a cyber attack by doing the wrong thing, for example the way you secure your passwords. That’s where our training comes in. Designed to protect you from you! The training is approved by the National Cyber Security Centre and is designed to cover the key knowledge that you need to keep you and those you work with secure at home or on the move.
