Last Updated: 15 Jul 2013
The government and a group of Britain's leading defence and security companies are working together to bolster the UK's cyber security.

The Defence Cyber Protection Partnership (DCPP) aims to meet the emerging threat to the UK defence supply chain by increasing awareness of cyber risks, sharing threat intelligence, and defining risk-driven approaches to applying cyber security standards.

The partnership includes the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI), GCHQ, the Ministry of Defence and nine companies: BAE Systems, BT, Cassidian, CGI, Hewlett Packard, Lockheed Martin, Rolls-Royce, Selex ES and Thales UK.
