Cyber-crime doesn't just mean online banking raids, it can also affect councils and their databases of confidential information.

If you don't know your phishing from your smishing (and no, we didn't either), then this new course, run in conjunction with BHIB's Head of Cyber Risk, Andy Hall, will identify the common threats faced by local councils and how to mitigate risk.

It will cover risk analysis, an overview of current trends, software updates, contingency plans, password security and more.

Course dates and venues TBC.
