In the lead up to the Locate conference and exhibition in Canberra this month, we’ll be highlighting some of the vendors you’ll be able to meet… their work, their products and their scheduled Locate presentations and/or activities.
This week, the Vendor Focus spotlight is on the Defence Industry Security Program.
The Defence Industry Security Program (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 DISP was relaunched in April 2019 and recently celebrated surpassing 1,000 members.
DISP membership is open to any Australian business (with an ABN or CAN) looking to become part of the Defence industry supply chain and comprises of four levels of membership that industry can apply for. DISP membership offers a range of support services that can be accessed by industry members, including information on better security practices.
The DISP provides continued support to members through a variety of channels including access to Defence and security experts and ongoing assurance that your business is meeting the necessary security obligations. The DISP website provides a number of resources that are valuable to industry members and has a ‘How to Apply’ page which intends to make the process cohesive and practical.
DISO will have representatives of the DISP at Locate 22 to assist with any queries about the program. Information will be presented by an expert speaker, and we will have a stand at the exhibition where you can find out more.
