Civil unrest and Martyn’s Law: Award
Scan the horizon and it’s clear the security industry face two challenges: civil unrest and Martyn’s Law (Protect Duty). SIRV‘s contextual threat assessment tool helps security aware organisations address this challenge, as recognised by Security & Fire Excellence Awards 2022.
