Security Review 'sharing day'

Accredited museums must obtain expert and objective security advice for collections at least every five years and plan to implement any recommendations.  We are interested to find out if there are museums in west Kent who are due a review of their security arrangements and would benefit from a 'sharing day' with a consultant security advisor to help meet the Accreditation requirement. Please contact joanna.low@brighton-hove.gov.uk to register your interest.

Security Alert

The National Museum Security Group have received intelligence suggesting that a man using the name "Henry van Norton" is purporting to be an "investigator" for the Rijksmuseum. He is approaching smaller museums and trying to trick them into removing their art from the frames for investigation.

The Rijksmuseum have confirmed that this man is not associated with them and would like all museums and galleries warned about the risk.
