The Head of Strategic Finance and Property introduced the report and welcomed questions from Members.


The Chairman said that the report showed that there had been few changes since the Committee last saw the Risk Register. He referred to page 104 of the report and asked if cyber related risks should be moved into the right-hand box of the matrix which housed the highest risk items. The Deputy Chief Executive said that the council was very well protected against cyber-attacks, with regular attempts being stopped. She said that it may be useful for Members to receive an update on failed cyber-attacks, to demonstrate how well the council was mitigated.


The Head of Strategic Finance and Property said that as the category which included cyber-attacks was already in the red zone of the matrix they were constantly monitored by Leadership Team.


The Chairman asked if emerging risks should have a section on the risk register. The Head of Strategic Finance and Property said that he would give this consideration.


It was moved by Councillor Alder and seconded by Councillor Huggins, that the recommendations, as detailed, be approved. After being put to the meeting and a vote taken, the motion was declared CARRIED.


RESOLVED – that (A) the Quarter 1 Strategic Risk register be reviewed and officers advised of any further action that could be taken to manage risk.
