Each council in Wales will receive a £9,000 grant to tackle the increase in cyber crime during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Welsh Government has brought forward its cyber funding plans in order for councils to strengthen their cyber resilience during the crisis.

Councils will also be able to bid for extra money from a £50,000 reserve fund.

Finance minister, Rebecca Evans, said: ‘Cyber security is vitally important as we all make the most of digital services during these challenging times. Sadly, there are people who will try to exploit this crisis.

’The funding I am announcing today will help provide additional resilience within local authority IT systems in response to the increase in cybercrime during the Covid-19 crisis.’
