The report of the Strata Board was submitted updating Members on changing cyber threats and Strata’s response, in the light of recent security incidents.


The Security and Compliance Manager updated Members on the details of recent attacks and on-going work to combat loss of data systems through a cyber-attack. These threats were increasing, such activity now practically organised on a commercial basis. All three sites were protected by daily backup with the new Strata systems which now included the City Council systems backed up at Oakwood. East Devon was backed up at Honiton and initial tests for Teignbridge to be backed up at Oakwood had been successful.


Members discussed the need for staff and Members awareness with regards to ‘Ransomware’ attacks via emails and the internet and the backup systems that Strata had in place.


Strata Joint Scrutiny Committee considered the report at its meeting on 17 March 2016 and its comments were reported.


RESOLVED that the actions approved by the Board be noted.
