Partnerships for Safer Cities

Safe and Secure  

May 8, 2014

The Cross-sector Safety & Security Communications (CSSC) hub is a partnership between law enforcement agencies, local and national government organisations and private sector businesses.
Operating under charitable status, CSSC aims to help businesses remain safe and secure by providing information that will assist them to develop robust resilience and emergency preparedness plans. This is achieved by delivering accurate, timely and authoritative messaging and information on an ongoing basis and in times of major incidents with far-reaching impact.

CSSC operates across a wide range of sectors , with each headed up by one or more Industry Sector Leads (ISLs). Currently operational in London and Scotland, the project is set to expand across the UK in the future.

CSSC has received widespread recognition, and in 2013 was delighted to receive the Best Contribution to Continuity & Resilience award at the CIR Business Continuity Awards 2013.
