The WHOLE council?

Why is it that huge swathes of an organisation get stuffed? The people who sweep the streets don't need to be in constant touch with housing benefits. If some master data centre is used then how does such a juicy target get hacked, and where are the proven mitigations? The response seems to be "Oh dear! We're not prepared for whatever it is."
