    UK Defence Cyber Protection Partnership

    The Defence Cyber Protection Partnership (DCPP), a government industry initiative was formed to create a joint response to the cyber threat. The DCPP aims to protect our military capability by improving cyber defence through the MOD’s supply chain while preserving existing investment in cyber security measures. As part of the partnership the Ministry of Defence has created a number of cyber security standards that have to be met to contract with MOD, these are outlined in the Cyber Security Model (CSM). In order for a supplier to demonstrate their compliance MOD has created Octavian/Supplier Cyber Protection. This free online tool enables you to complete both risk assessments (RA) and supplier assurance questionnaires (SAQ). .
