Adelaide Defense Industry Security Program (DISP) Provider

Local DISP Consultants

Adelaide is home to some of Australia’s greatest Defence Industry manufacturers, suppliers and assets.

Adelaide is home to some of Australia's greatest Defence Industry manufacturers, suppliers and assets. Whilst highly lucrative, the defence industry is also competitive and faces increasing regulatory and compliance requirements for companies participating in defence tenders.

Both Government and Private Defence Contractors (Primes) are seeking to strengthen the SME supply chain. 

Naturally, SME's must improve their internal processes to maintain a high level of information security. This is particularly the case when defence contracts provide access to sensitive and classified material.

The Defence Industry Security Program was government's answer to these challenges. The DISP is now considered a requirement for many tenders by both Government and Primes.
