The increase in political tension across the globe, the threat of terror and the growth of intelligent cyber attacks is set to fuel spend around counter terrorism not just in the UK, but internationally.
Our defence intelligence solution is well positioned in the market to support suppliers and buyers with security tenders.
The MOD realises that it is vital to invest in plans to procure innovative and forward-thinking technologies to maintain its military advantage, keep the country secure and mitigate threats from terrorist organisations.
As the UK is facing a number of different terrorist threats it has created a counter terrorism strategy called CONTEST which aims to “reduce the risk to the UK and its citizens and interests overseas from terrorism so that people can go about their lives freely and with confidence.”
The current Defence Plan involves spending over £186 billion on equipment and support over the decade from 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2028 – this includes planned spending on a variety of counter terrorism related projects offering opportunities to suppliers both directly and within the defence and security supply chain.
The UK Government has stated that police, security and intelligence agencies will work with the private and public sectors to ensure that the UK is a safe place to live and work in – and counter terrorism procurement has a huge role to play in achieving this.

Countries around the world are addressing terrorist threats to their urban spaces – a real challenge considering the current security climate. To tackle this, partnerships must exist between all levels of government and law enforcement agencies and the broader public sector.
The nature of national security and counter terrorism in the 21st century means that government organisations have to deal with a number of sophisticated challenges, and they rely on the procurement process to find the suppliers who can provide the products, services and solutions that they need for this.
The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation is a military alliance of 29 North American and European nations. It is currently working on its counter terrorism strategy and leading the way in defence innovation.
NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg has estimated that European countries and Canada will spend an extra $266 billion on defence between 2018 and 2024 to modernise their defence capabilities and boost the fight against terrorism.
The organisation has stated that:
“NATO’s work on counter terrorism focuses on improving awareness of the threat, developing capabilities to prepare and respond, and enhancing engagement with partner countries and other international actors.”
NATO’s commitment to this area will provide future counter terrorism tender opportunities for suppliers to work with global defence organisations. If your organisation is interested in engaging with buyers from the defence world, learn how with our defence intelligence solution.Defence Intelligence
As cyber threats become more sophisticated, governments across the world share concerns that the impact from a major cyber attack could have a crippling effect on critical infrastructure in developed countries.
Public services such as hospitals are highly dependent on networks and their cyber counterparts. For example, when WannaCry struck in 2017, the ransomware cost public sector organisations across the world millions of pounds, while in the UK thousands of NHS patient appointments were cancelled due to the attack.
To tackle evolving threats, defence organisations must engage with private sector suppliers and specialists within the cyber security sector. If your business can offer expertise in this area visit the Cyber Security Procurement section of our website.
