Information security policy statement

Supporting policies and compliance

Several policies, procedures and standards support this policy statement.  

We make the policies  available to all staff electronically.

The policies support a layered approach to protect information and information assets.  


Our employees have a contractual responsibility to be aware of and conform to our:

  • values
  • rules
  • policies
  • procedures

Breaches of policy may lead to the employee going through our disciplinary procedure.  This is in accordance with the code of conduct and our disciplinary policy.

We may revoke access to our information and ICT from non-council employees who fail to comply with our policies. Such action could have an impact on contracts with third-party organisations.
