Council website disruption update

By on 02/02/2012 in News

We are aware that some of you have been experiences difficulties over the last few days when attempting to access the council’s corporate website www.birmingham.gov.uk

Service Birmingham (the joint venture between the council and Capita that delivers the council’s IT services) has identified multiple, sustained and inappropriate attempts to connect with www.birmingham.gov.uk which, if successful, could lead to system failures and a breach of security.

However, these attempted breaches have been contained by our in-built security systems.

We may have to take the site down intermittently to identify the source of the problem and ensure that we maintain the security of the website and council networks.

We apologise for the disruption and the inconvenience this causes. The continued security of the site is our utmost priority and our security team is attempting to solve these issues as quickly as possible.

Once there are updates on this, we will ensure you know through this site.
