Background/Justification:

There are several projects delivering new IS capability and systems within this part of the MOD. The maturity of the documentation sets and their accreditation status varies from mature to unaccredited. The SAC will be critical in ensuring that both new and current applications and capability delivery can gain the appropriate security accreditation required to enable roll out onto the relevant infrastructure platforms including MODNET and DIIF (Fixed and Deployed). The SAC will be responsible for ensuring the delivery of accreditation of all programme and project deliverables, and assuring that the deliverables achieve JSP604 compliance. The SAC is also responsible for ensuring that the individual project security deliverables meet with the requirement to achieve the necessary security accreditation. The risk to data is, in some systems, judged as high due to the fragmented approach that has been applied. The SAC will be required to deliver a coherent plan that ensures all programmes and projects are brought up to a compliant state and risk is reduced to a level consistent with the wishes of the SROs.
