No one gets caught out when Halo is involved
Halo Solutions kept players, staff and spectators safe at this six week event.
The ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup saw 48 matches take place across 11 UK venues with 10 teams taking part over six weeks. Over 1m people attended and worked at the games and countless more attended the fan zones. It attracted a TV audience of 1.6bn viewers. Halo was used to keep everyone attending the event safe along with protecting the team from hostile actions at their hotels and during coach trips to practice venues throughout the tournament. All close protection teams, residential security teams, hotels, cricket stadia, transport teams and police forces used the same intelligence platform for the safeguarding of everyone involved in the event.

What the client says
Jill McCracken, Director of Tournament Safety and Security at the Cricket World Cup, said: “Event security needs to be smarter with a discreet presence, after all events are meant to make people smile and security shouldn’t be a barrier to rewarding experiences. Halo allowed me to keep my security plans discreet yet offered me the oversight to see what was going on across 10 cities at the same time. The app was a superb choice for the Cricket World Cup 2019 as it was so flexible, we could tailor it to our requirements, it was also secure, fast and reliable.” Tim Hogan, Intelligence Manager at the Cricket World Cup said: “I wanted to just touch specifically on the point about data extraction. Often this is overlooked with the focus on getting information into the system in the first place. However, you are clearly not getting the full benefits of a tool if the data is difficult to get out again to do anything with it. I was able to have some input into the data extraction functionality of Halo and found the end result user friendly and a great aid for analysing the available data. This really set Halo apart from other available options at the time. When comparing different solutions don’t just look at your short term needs, but consider how this data may be used for longer term trend/pattern analysis later. How is the data structured? How easy is it to export? What does this look like? I find often this isn’t covered in demos and you run the risk of ending up with ‘all this data that I don’t know what to do with’ as I recall an operation manager saying to me previously. Not considering this at the start can lead to many wasted staff hours trying to make this work later on!”

Hear from us
“It was incredible to be part of such a fantastic global tournament. The ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup was the most high-profile event to take place in Britain since the 2012 Olympics and it was a privilege to protect their people and their brand. I think everyone in our industry lives to be involved in huge things like this, to face the challenge, rise to the test and deliver as a team and we were able to provide world class software, hardware and people to support the ICC’s requirements.”
