MoJ want partner for a £250k cybersecurity review

Written by  Aug 17, 2019

The Ministry of Justice is looking for a partner to assist with a “comprehensive review” and subsequent update of its security policies and guidance.

The MoJ is looking to appoint a supplier to a contract of up to one year designed to ensure it has a “modern security stack” comprising policies, standards, guidelines, and procedures to apply to its use of technology.

The organisation wishes to conduct an all-encompassing review of existing security arrangements across the central department, its agencies, arm’s-length bodies, and other related entities. Having completed this process, the MoJ wishes to implement “revised documentation with keenly modernised positions”.

Such documents will ultimately be used by departmental staff and contractors, as well as by external suppliers.

“The MoJ has been working on improving its IT security policies and guidance to update them into modern, pragmatic, user-centric content,” the department said. “Our goal is to have an updated portfolio that enables digital and technology delivery teams, and all of our suppliers, to easily understand their responsibilities with regards to security and privacy matters, and provide clear guidance on good ways to achieve good security outcomes. This will enable our security specialists to focus on the more complex and challenge security problems we face.”

The review, which will last up to a year and will commence with an opening discovery exercise to take place at the MoJ’s offices. Once the process starts in earnest, the chosen supplier will be expected to provide the department with progress updates every two weeks.

Bids for the project, for the which the MoJ has a budget of £250,000, are open until 26th August, with work due to commence shortly thereafter. The department expects to evaluate about five suppliers. The winning bidder will work alongside the security and privacy team that sits within the MoJ Digital and Technology unit.
