CSSC stands for Cross-sector Safety and Security Communications. It
represents a partnership between, the Police, Government and
industry that brings businesses and business networks together to
ensure businesses receive the information they need, when they need
it, to stay safe and secure in the lead up to and during and after
To do this, CSSC builds on existing (but specialist) successful
and proven security networks such as Project Griffin (security
sector) and Sister Banks (finance sector), to provide a means for
the Police and Government to communicate with the wider private
sector – businesses both big and small, with ‘one voice’ on safety
and security, as well as to receive feedback from business on the
security issues important to them.

safety and security aware before, during, and after the Games, by
improving communication between the public and private sector on
security matters, creating a legacy of improved communication and

the use of resources. There will also be on-line resources to help
businesses prepare to mitigate specific risks.
