P61, 5.169. New section on e-mails, use of personal email addresses “The addition of a section on the importance of smaller authorities using secure e-mail systems and gov.uk addresses re-inforcing last year’s letter from the Chair of JPAG encouraging every authority to have its own e-mail address which is owned by the authority rather than relying on the use of personal e-mail addresses that can change regularly. This will reduce the risk of correspondence going astray or being delayed.” https://www.nalc.gov.uk/library/our-work/jpag/3480-practitioners-guide-changes-2021/file.
