Cross-sector Safety and Security Communications (CSSC) in numbers
Every security professional knows it is essential to have up-to-date and accurate information. This may relate to the latest terrorist incident, the impact of extreme weather conditions or intelligence on current crime trends. In support of this, CSSC continues to play a key role in distributing security and safety information to business right across the UK.
The CSSC is now a national initiative providing information nationwide through its ten regional hubs. Here are a few key facts about CSSC as of February 2020:
609 – CSSC London, national and regional messages have been sent, or bridge calls held, between Nov 2014 and Feb 2020.
3,415 – organisations and companies have registered via the website to receive CSSC messaging, since March 2014.
739 – organisations registered during 2019.

As an example, in February 2020, messages have come from National Counter Terrorism Policing Headquarters (NCTPHQ), the National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC), National Events Intelligence Unit (NEIU), Public Health England, Metropolitan Police and HM Environment Agency.
These have included messages on the Wuhan Coronavirus, the terrorist attack in Streatham, Property Flood Resilience Code of Practice and Cyber Security.
