Dark Site - Website in times of crisis

Dark sites are pages for the internet and intranet that a company creates in readiness for potential crises but does not actually place online until an acute crisis has arisen. The principal aim of "dark sites" is to provide the company's target groups (e.g. journalists, press, family members of those involved) with comprehensive round-the-clock information relating to the crisis. checkpointmedia was commissioned to conceive, design and implement the dark sites and will also assist the airport in future in a consulting capacity should a crisis arise. Crisis drills will be held four times a year in the form of workshops.
