Our Accreditations

Our Approach

UKCloudX supports a growing portfolio of defence related activities which are helping our Armed Forces to protect the
UK and its interests. Old ways of working with dated contracts, poorly performing infrastructure and legacy paper-based
systems are constantly being challenged, and the Ministry of Defence is working to deliver secure, connected services
quickly and efficiently. By its very nature, the data involved is likely to have higher security classifications, and the decision
to move to a cloud-based service requires careful assessment of the credentials, experience and resilience of the cloud
service provider.

To support this, UKCloudX has developed and implemented a comprehensive information security and data protection
framework which provides our defence customers and partners with credible assurance material, underpinning our
commitment to keep their sensitive datasets safe and secure. We also provide an isolated, higher assurance cloud
environment for workloads above Official.

Led by our Director of Compliance and Information Assurance, UKCloudX has an experienced team who regularly help our
defence customers and partners to identify and assess the risks in their solutions, and design and implement appropriate
security controls to effectively manage, mitigate or remediate them.
