This briefing will update ADS Members on the current priorities and activities of the alliance.

The Chairman, Sir Kevin Tebbit, has commissioned the RISC Secretariat to undertake a stocktake exercise of the principal Government interlocutors of the founding Trade Associations of the alliance – ADS, BSIA and techUK – in order to cross-fertilise this engagement for the collective good of the Security industry. Sir Kevin will also update members on the work of the Security and Resilience Growth Partnership (SRGP) that he co-chairs with the Minister for Security, and the roundtable will cover how communication is facilitated between the Secretariat, the founding Trade Associations and the wider members of the alliance which, in total, represent around 6000 companies by virtue of the organisations which participate.

This event promises to be an excellent opportunity for ADS Members to learn more about the role and work of RISC, as well as understanding how they might contribute to ongoing RISC activities including, but not limited to, the development with the UK Government of industry‘s contributions to national Security policy.


Sir Kevin Tebbit, Chairman of the UK's Security and Resilience Industry Suppliers Community (RISC).  Sir Kevin is currently Senior Independent Director at Smiths Group Plc, Executive Vice President at AECOM and former Director of GCHQ and Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Defence.
