Emergency Planning

As part of our continuing programme of work to enhance the security and resilience of the Quarter, we will be hosting our latest emergency planning and crisis management exercise on 23 March 2023, 9.00 – 11.30, at The Portman Estate, 40 Portman Square. The session will be delivered by City of London Police, Cyber Griffin Unit, and focusses in particular on business’ response to both hacking and malware attacks, in addition to physical security threats. 

Based around a realistic scenario, the tabletop exercise will be focused on crisis prevention and response and will examine how incident management can be improved by access to information, enhanced communication and collaboration with neighbouring businesses. The session builds on and complements our previous exercises and will specifically consider the security implications of the current hybrid way of working with staff time split between home and work.   

It is open to all members, free of charge, irrespective of your level of expertise and is designed to help you assess your preparedness, understand how your plans fit with other members and consider how the area might recover from the disruptive effects of a major event. It is not necessary for you to have attended the earlier tabletop to benefit from this event. 

If you’re in a security role or are responsible for developing business continuity and crisis response plans, we would particularly welcome your attendance. 

This session is exclusive to Baker Street Quarter Partnership member businesses. To check if your business is a member and sign up, email training@bakerstreetq.co.uk.
