NALC marks the second consecutive year of Cyber Essentials certification


The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) proudly announces the successful renewal of its Cyber Essentials certification for the second consecutive year. This achievement demonstrates NALC's commitment to safeguarding its members’ data and business operations against evolving cyber threats. 

Cyber Essentials is a UK government-backed scheme that helps organisations to protect themselves against common cybersecurity risks. To achieve the certification, organisations must have technical controls, including firewalls, secure configuration, access control, malware protection, and patch management. 

Cllr Keith Stevens, NALC chair, said: “Securing our Cyber Essentials certification for the second consecutive year reaffirms our dedication to maintaining a secure digital environment. Whilst prioritising cybersecurity best practices, we also wish to emphasise the importance of proactive cybersecurity measures to local councils.”  

NALC's IT support provider, Cloudy IT, also commended NALC’s commitment to cybersecurity. David Hall, managing director at Cloudy IT, said: “Maintaining Cyber Essentials certification for the second year demonstrates NALC's proactive approach to safeguarding against cyber threats and shows their dedication to implementing robust security measures. We are proud to continue partnering with NALC and local councils in their cybersecurity journey.”
