CSSC Update – Spring 2014
CSSC has widened the range of authority bodies that circulate their information direct to the Industry Sector Leaders (ISLs) within the project.
Andy Archibald, the Head of Cyber security at the National Crime Agency, has recently finalised arrangements for regular monthly bulletins from the NCA to be circulated through CSSC. The Senior Intelligence Officer for Threats/Alerts at NCA subsequently requested that a combined NCA and NFIB alert message on a ‘Construction Industry Mandate Fraud’ be circulated by CSSC.
Exercise Safer City
Twenty ISLs and the CSSC project hub teams in London and Scotland took part in the GLA London Resilience Team table top ‘Exercise Safer City’, held in November.
During three pre-planned conference calls, a two-way flow of extremely useful advice and guidance was discussed and supplied by the ISLs, which had a profound effect on the course of the exercise.
CSSC Table Top exercise
Over 60 ISLs took part in a major CSSC ‘Table Top’ exercise at Credit Suisse in Canary Wharf in April. Sir David Veness opened the event with special guests including Sir David Wootton and Richard Barnes.

A new CSSC website was launched in early March. This has been designed to incorporate the additional CSSC regions being developed around the UK.
The CSSC Scotland hub team has already formed, ready for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, and it is planned that an East Anglia region will be established later this year.
