Through assessing your organisations capability and solutions, Ipau’s specialist knowledge of Defence and Defence Industry allows us to work with you to refine your strategic plan all the way through to execution and creating tangible, actionable outcomes.  We focus on providing tailored solutions based on your individual requirements and Defence needs.


The Defence Industry Security Program (DISP), managed by the Defence Industry Security Office (DISO), supports Australian businesses to understand and meet their security obligations when engaging in Defence projects, contracts and tenders. 

It is essentially security vetting for Australian businesses. DISP helps you to get the right security requirements when delivering Defence contracts and tenders. It gives you access to Defence security advice and support services along with helping you better understand and manage security risks across your business. DISP membership provides confidence and assurance to Defence and other government entities (either Australian or foreign) when procuring goods and services from industry members.
