Strengthening our position as an Australian Defence Industry Supplier

By May 16, 2022 No Comments

Orontide have strengthened our position as an Australian Defence Industry supplier after achieving Defence Industry Security Program (DISP) membership.

This Defence Industry Security Program membership is a highly desired requirement for any Australian businesses working in the Defence Industry supply chain as it demonstrates our ability to meet our obligation to contribute to the security of our people, information and assets.

The DISP, managed by the Defence Industry Security Office (DISO), supports Australian businesses to understand and meet their security obligations when engaging in Defence projects, contracts and tenders.  The program is intended to address and protect the Australian Defence Industry supply chain from security vulnerabilities by assessing a business’s processes, procedures, information technology and cyber security, physical security and personnel security.

It is an essential part of the security vetting process for Australian businesses such as ours who play a key role in the Defence Industry supply chain.

DISP membership also provides our business with the following benefits:

  • It helps us to obtain the right security requirements when delivering Defence contracts and tenders;
  • It provides us with access to Defence security advice and support services;
  • It helps us to better understand and manage security risks across our business; and
  • It provides confidence and assurance to Defence and other government entities (either Australian or foreign) when procuring goods and services from our business.

Our DISP membership is the result of a significant amount of work from our business and includes our accreditation by Bureau Veritas Group to meet the requirements for ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security.

As an Australian business working closely with the Defence industry we have an obligation to contribute to the security of our people, information and assets. Our DISP membership demonstrates our commitment to providing the highest quality service to our Defence Clients and ensures that we remain at the forefront of current Industry requirements to ensure that key deliverables are met for all of our work.
