Secure by Design

The Ministry of Defence (MOD) has adopted a new security assurance method called Secure by Design. This new approach has replaced the previous Accreditation method.

In accordance with the revised assurance policies of the MOD, the Secure by Design approach has been adopted instead of the former accreditation method.

Secure by Design is the new MOD assurance approach which has replaced Accreditation.

The Secure by Design approach is a modern approach whereby SROs, capability owners and delivery teams are accountable and responsible for delivering cyber secure systems. — MOD

This way of working requires organisations to understand their threat environment and make risk-based decisions. At Salus, we can guide you through this new process and ensure that you are compliant with the framework.

Risk Management Accredited Document Set (RMADS) and Accreditation

If you still need to develop a Risk Management Accredited Document Set (RMADS) for government accreditation, our consultants can create tailored documentation that meets your requirements. We have experience creating these for multiple companies within the defence industry and can provide advice and guidance on risk management and continuous assurance practices.

Secure By Design (SBD) Approval

With our extensive experience working with the old accreditation system and with our clients in defence, we can act as an external body to determine whether your networks meet SBD's requirements. This service allows you to transfer the approval responsibilities to us and ensure that your networks follow the SPD framework.

Secure By Design (SBD) Gap Analysis

Salus can assess your current processes and procedures against the SPD framework and provide tailored advice on what improvements can be made. We will lay out a remediation action report detailing areas of non-compliance and changes which can be made to ensure continued compliance runs smoothly.

Are you looking to create a new classified network or transition a network from the old accreditation system to SPD? Salus can help you through the journey. We can assist you in creating the required documentation and guide you through all assurance requirements of the framework.

Salus has provided an excellent level of service to DEFRA and could not be happier with the levels of engagement, skill sets, performance and capability of the Salus team. I would certainly recommend them as a supplier for security testing and other capabilities.
