Introduction to DISA

DISA (formerly The Defence Industry Security Association) has been in existence since 1963. During that time, it has seen many changes both internally, not least its name change in July 2003.

DISA grew from the need to have a corporate body able to advise, guide and comment on security matters for organisations working with His Majesty’s Government, the Ministry of Defence and their subcontractors.

The membership is drawn from individuals responsible for advising management on the implications and contractual obligations required by contracts involving Classification /Classified Material, and education of company personnel on security procedures and practices.

DISA provides an invaluable medium for communication between its members and likewise with Government Agencies. With the development of international links, DISA strengthens the co-operation and understanding between companies involved in international projects.
