How to win security tenders

In the current political climate, the UK Government is doing everything it can to tighten security measures by working with countries like Poland to create cyber and defence ties.

Last week, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson visited their Polish counterparts in Helenow, near Warsaw to establish how the countries can work together on foreign affairs, defence and security, particularly in the context of Brexit and increased concerns about Russia’s role on the world stage.

If your business is looking for security tenders, this is a clear sign that the UK Government is investing in this area.
