Local authorities provide a wide range of services from housing and
education to business services and the environment. This means that
they handle a substantial amount of sensitive information related to individuals,
as well as material protectively marked by the government
as confidential or restricted, held in centralised databases. Holding this
information poses a wide range of risks;for example this information is
extremely valuable for criminals looking to commit fraud such as identity
theft, or even for the inquisitive user looking for details of friends or,
as has been seen, famous people.
