Cross Sector Safety and Security CommunicationsCSSC
The Cross-sector Safety and Security Communications (CSSC) initiative, was founded in June 2011 by a team of senior security experts, with the aim of building a messaging platform, to facilitate communications between the private and public sectors, on issues surrounding security and business resilience.
The initiative was formed on a partnership basis between law enforcement, government departments and nearly every industry sector that operates in the capital and beyond. Industry Sector Leads (ISLs) were identified for each industry, with a remit to participate in briefing calls and events, and disseminate appropriate messaging conveying “one single truth” to their networks.
The charity’s objectives are stated as:
To promote for the public benefit, in partnership with the police, law enforcement agencies and other relevant bodies and organisations, the protection of people and property from, and the prevention of, criminal acts in particular but not exclusively by the provision of a national communication vehicle between the public and private sectors, providing information on all relevant security matters.
