MOD Supplier Security

Supporting MOD suppliers across the UK.

Our Approach

We are an established all-in-one stop for some of the largest Defence suppliers in the UK, specialising in deploying expert resources to MoD suppliers to ensure your information-based capabilities, such as systems and services are successfully aligned to MoD Secure by Design principles, and in turn, your project is delivered efficiently on time.

We do this by mobilising our in-house agile core team to work on an ad-hoc or project basis, or by appointing specialist outsourced security teams or individuals who can support and complete projects over an extended period of time.

The MoD has moved to a Secure by Design approach, with the MoD Secure by Design Process having been formally launched in July 2023. With change accelerating in the MoD, we will ensure you have resources in position to understand and accommodate the change during and after the transition phase.
