Defence and Security Board

The Defence & Security Board is our most senior industry grouping in the defence and security sectors. It is comprised of high level representatives from strategically important companies active in the UK's national security markets and policy areas. Its focus is addressing the strategic-level concerns that impact the defence and security IT sector. Each of the defence and security councils and groups feed into the work of the Defence & Security Board.

Recent briefings to the Board have been delivered by:

  • Defence Growth Partnership
  • Home Office Security Engagement Team
  • MOD Permanent Secretary

Membership is by invitation only.
