DISP Common Questions Answered

Depending on the level of DISP membership you are seeking your implementation costs can vary greatly. 

It may be the case that your company is already compliant with the majority of requirements for a particular DISP level, or that significant work is required in some DISP categories but not in all four. 

The Gap Analysis conducted by our consultants will give you a clear indication of your current compliance and capability gaps. 

At that stage of the project your implementation costs will become clear.

Our consultancy has often saved tens of thousands in IT implementation costs, massively reduced risk, saved executives time, streamlined DISP applications, and prevented lengthy recommendations from  defence.

Though lodgement of DISP applications are free, consultancy has significant benefits too. 

All DISP consultancy pricing is custom to your company.

This is necessary as organisational risk factors can vary significantly.
