For information, the MOD website says:

"The Defence Cyber Protection Partnership (DCPP), a government industry initiative was formed to create a joint response to the cyber threat.

The DCPP aims to protect our military capability by improving cyber defence through the MOD’s supply chain while preserving existing investment in cyber security measures.

As part of the partnership the Ministry of Defence has created a number of cyber security standards that have to be met to contract with MOD, these are outlined in the Cyber Security Model (CSM).

In order for a supplier to demonstrate their compliance MOD has created the Supplier Cyber Protection Service. This is an online tool that enables you to complete a risk assessment (RA) and/or a supplier assurance questionnaire (SAQ)." (from DCPP web page 080917)
