Our security consulting team were engaged by an elite group of schools in London (covering preschool to senior school) to assess their current security measures and crisis management planning, particularly with regard to background checking and safeguarding, and make recommendations on how these could be improved across a 3-year timeframe. We identified a number of quick wins and longer-term technical projects and made direct revisions to how they respond to crises affecting any number of the schools, including with regard to threats made against high profile students and their families.
