Defence Cyber Protection Partnership

Defence Cyber Protection Partnership (DCPP), announced in July 2013[1], is a group of companies working with government on "cyber security" issues in the defence industry.

"Working with the trade associations ADS and Intellect, the DCPP will raise awareness and improve the understanding of cyber security risks. In particular they will highlight the need for protective measures which should increase the security of the wider defence supply chain and define an approach to implementing cyber security standards across its members and its supply chain partners."

The partnership includes: Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure, GCHQ, Ministry of Defence, BAE Systems, BT, Cassidian, Hewlett Packard, Locheed Martin, Rolls-Royce, Selex ES, and Thales UK. In 2014 the partnership will open up its membership to other firms.[2]

Organisations within the DCPP will also share information via Cyber Security Information Sharing Partnership. It is expected to work in conjunction with the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills on organisational standards projects.
