The City of Cockburn is running a series of workshops to support local business to become defence ready. These in person workshops are designed to provide need-to-know information and critical insights to help businesses prepare and tender for work in the defence supply chain.

Have you heard about the Defence Industry Security Program (DISP) but not sure if your business needs it, or how to get started? It’s fast becoming a requirement for businesses in the defence sector to hold an appropriate level of DISP membership. With over 1,000 pages of defence security policy, not to mention a vast number of acronyms to get your head around – it's not surprising that many businesses find addressing defence security requirements a challenge.

This workshop will aim to demystify defence security, highlighting the need-to-know areas and looking at the DISP, including why you should consider it and how to go about it.

The workshop covers:

  • governance, personnel security and physical security requirements
  • ICT/cyber security requirements, including a review of the Essential 8
  • process before formal DISP application
  • the DISP application process
  • process after formal DISP application
  • how to fulfil your obligations as a DISP member
  • common mistakes and challenges along the way
  • how to access security information and grants
  • external agencies that work alongside defence.
  • Cost:$25.00
  • Date:Thu 12 Oct 2023
  • Time:9:30 am - 12:30 pm AWST
  • Address:Melville Cockburn Chamber of Commerce, 11 Wentworth Parade, Success, WA, 6164
