Security Standards and Guidelines
Any application supplied to Leicester City Council must be designed with security in mind. Leicester City Council strives to ensure all possible measures are taken to secure personal data and avoid unauthorised access to other data and services hosted on the Leicester City Council network
All applications are subject to a full security audit by Leicester City Council Internal Audit before entering production status
Where appropriate, Leicester City Council will arrange for applications to be penetration tested by external agencies and seek remedial action on issues found before the application can enter production status.
