Defence Tech Transfer Brings Innovative Cyber Security Assessment Tool to the Market

Great to see in Computer Weekly that a "military-grade" cyber defence capability assessment tool (CDCAT) is being made available to commercial business. Originally developed for the Ministry of Defence (MoD) by the UK Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) it is being licensed to accreditation organisation APMG via Ploughshare Innovations (which manages the commercial licensing of technology out of DSTL). Apparently the tool and its scoring system can be used on an on-going basis to monitor cyber risk by obtaining a business licence from APMG for the .NET version or by signing up for the soon-to-be-introduced web version.
