Electoral Commission Data Breach

The Council has been made aware that the Electoral Commission (EC), to whom we are required by law to provide our electoral register each year, has been the subject of a cyber attack. The EC believes that electoral registers between 2014 and 2022 may have been accessed.  Whilst there is no indication that information accessed during this cyber-attack has been published online, there remains the possibility that some information has found its way into the public domain. 

For further information, please visit the EC website where you will find a Public Notification regarding the incident, FAQs and details of how to contact the EC about the incident. Please note that the Council is not able to answer any questions about this matter, therefore, please direct all queries to the EC.
