Join us for our next Communities webinar on 30 November 2022 at 10 a.m.

Cybercriminals are increasingly targeting UK councils, with more than 2.3 million attacks detected in the first half of 2022 alone.1

Local councils and other organisations serving their community may consider themselves to be less of a target for cyber-attacks than large corporations. However, cybercriminals will often follow the path of least resistance—so it’s important not to ignore potential gaps in your digital defences.

On 30 November, we will be hosting a webinar focusing on how councils can identify and mitigate their cyber risks in a landscape that is continually evolving.

In this webinar, we will explore:

  • Cyber insurance—a market overview
  • Types of cyber-attacks and what to look out for
  • How you can protect your organisation against cyber risk

We will also be introducing Gallagher Cyber Assist—a specialist service offered by Gallagher’s Cyber Risk Management Practice to help you implement the cyber controls that insurers want to see in order to quote for cyber cover.

Join us as we discuss the role of cyber insurance, the importance of effective cyber risk management, and how the two can work together to help you reduce your cyber liability.

Our panel:

  • Ross Bullard, Client Director—Communities, Gallagher
  • Georgia Dicker, Cyber Risk Consultant, Gallagher

Who should attend?

Clerks, Councillors and those in managerial roles within local councils and community organisations.


Panel discussion with audience Q&A.

1. Based on Freedom of Information requests sent to 426 councils across the UK on 20 June 2022. Of these, 243 responded before 15 August 2022, with 83 councils refusing to share the data, either due to exemptions or it not being held, meaning 160 councils shared at least some of the data requested. 2,274,188 attempted cyber-attacks in 2022 were reported by UK councils. 88 councils responded with data as a result of this section of the Freedom of Information request. 2,274,188 attempted cyber-attacks in 2022 were reported by UK councils. This is 14% more than the 1,996,204 attempted cyber-attacks reported by UK councils in 2021 in the same FOI request. 274,188 having been reported, this indicates as many as 11,009,137 could have actually taken place – which is rounded down to 11m as an estimate.
