Safeguarding national security – robust cyber security measures for the UK’s defence industry

Protecting the defence industry

The UK’s defence industry – including defence suppliers, manufacturers and contractors is confronted with significant cyber security challenges that can threaten national security and the defence of the realm.

Cyber security threats include vulnerabilities in the complex defence supply chain, threats to intellectual property, risks of espionage and sabotage, and the demanding task of compliance with stringent regulations such as the Defence Cyber Protection Partnership (DCPP) and Cyber Security Model (CSM). Each link in the supply chain presents a potential target for cybercriminals, and the high value of defence-related intellectual property makes it a prime target for theft.

This complex landscape necessitates robust, adaptive, and vigilant cyber security measures to safeguard sensitive systems and data, and to ensure operational integrity. Whatever the maturity of your cyber security implementation throughout the defence supply chain, our professional, accredited cyber security consultants have decades of hard-won experience in strengthening the defence industry – from suppliers to the MoD – against evolving cyber threats.
