Guildford Borough Council LogoGuildford Borough Council uses Egress Email and File Protection to securely send and receive sensitive information internally and with approved third parties. As the largest borough council within Surrey, Guildford Borough Council is responsible for delivering a variety of services such as community safety, housing, recycling, parking, tourism and leisure. The council works closely with its community and businesses.
