Criminal Cyber Incident

Comhairle nan Eilean Siar is engaging with Police Scotland, Scottish Government and the National Cyber Security Centre following a criminal cyber incident on 7 November.

The Comhairle’s priority following this incident is to restore and secure services ensuring their continued delivery to those in our communities who need them most.

It is vital that the Comhairle is contactable to allow us to serve the communities of the Western Isles. The Comhairle’s email system is now restored, and work is ongoing to redirect numbers for key public services.

The Comhairle’s out of hours service is functioning as normal.
