Head in the Cloud: Responding and Recovering Quickly from a Cyber Attack 

Speakers:

Std Sharples

AD Digital and People, St Helens Borough Council

Mark Byrom

Head of ICT and Digital Delivery, St Helens Borough Council

Time: TBC

We will be sharing our learning and approach to adopting a cloud model and how this helped us to respond to the substantial cyber attack we faced last year.

 

Not only did this enable staff to continue working with minimum disruption, but also ensured there was minimum impact to residents and businesses in the borough.

 

We will also discuss how we engaged with all staff and members on the issue and how all our workforce played their part to help us recover as quickly as possible. We will also look at learnings from the attack and how they are helping us to prepare for a possible attack in the future.
