Thales becomes member of Defence Cyber Protection Partnership

Thales : 08 July, 2013  (Company News)
The UK is fighting cyber crime with the formation of the Defence Cyber Protection Partnership with the participation of Thales
Thales becomes member of Defence Cyber Protection Partnership

The UK Government and a select group of Britain’s leading defence and security companies have joined forces to launch the Defence Cyber Protection Partnership (DCPP). This is aimed at bolstering the security of the UK against cyber attack through action within the defence industry.

Thales UK is one of the founding partners of the DCPP and is tasked with leading the Standards and Measurement activity stream within this.

Commenting on the formation of the group, Sam Keayes, Vice President for Security & Consulting at Thales UK said, “The protection of UK companies from cyber attack is one of the most pressing national security issues of the day.  This is particularly critical for the defence industry and its supply chain whose IT systems and networks must, by necessity, carry large amounts of highly sensitive information. We are only going to address this threat by working together: setting high standards, developing best practice, and sharing real-time information about the type and extent of cyber attack that each company is experiencing.

Thales is a founding partner of the Defence Cyber Protection Partnership, which we see as an important government-industry initiative to improve the cyber defences of the MOD’s supply chain. The DCCP will enable a collaborative approach across the entire supply chain, ensuring that every stage of the procurement, manufacturing and delivery process is as secure as it can possibly be.It is important to set standards so that the supply chain knows the level of cyber security that it needs to achieve. Thales is leading the Standards and Measurement activity stream within the DCPP.”
