Peterborough City Council to use Salesforce for core platform

Authority hopes to also use AWS for hosting as it drives its ICT to the cloud

He said that data security was one of the major considerations for the ICT team when writing the strategy. However Godfrey warned that focusing on the safety of tools is not as important as user behaviour.

"We have a very strict governance team, we have to hold them back slightly. They once tried to turn the entire estate off as there was an issue with one policy. But why would our two to three strong security team do a better job than companies like Box who spend millions on security?

"I don't think there's ever been an ICO [Information Commissioner's Office] fine on a network. The issue is people taking stuff out of the network. Teaching employees how to manage data is far more important than focusing on the tools they use."
