Denel Sovereign Security Solutions (Denel S3) was established to provide focus to Denel’s strategy to diversify into the non-defence civil security markets in support of the Group’s efforts for growth and sustainable markets.
Based at the Denel Irene campus, Denel S3 has established the Denel Tactical Cyber Command Centre (DTC3), starting with a basic cyber security operations centre to provide Denel with added protection against cyber threats.
DTC3 will ensure Denel’s leadership, staff, policies, processes, practices and technologies provide ongoing oversight, management, performance measurement and course correction of all cyber-security activities.
Ultimately, DTC3 will protect defence and security interests through accredited cyber security services aligned to the National Cybersecurity Policy Framework (NCPF) and the Defence Review 2015.
- Situational awareness through real-time network monitoring
- Coordinated response to threats
- Vulnerability and penetration testing
- Information protection and recovery
- Awareness training and threat intelligence
- Identity authentication
- Protection of data in transit and at rest
- Physical infrastructure
Denel S3 will also intensify efforts to secure projects in command and control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) solutions in national, provincial and international security institutions and/or government departments. In doing so, Denel will apply defence-bred programme management and systems engineering capability in providing integrated solutions.
Denel S3 Vision
To be the trusted sovereign technology partner and systems integrator to the sovereign security sectors in the realisation and through life support of complex systems.
Denel S3 Mission
To contribute to the promotion of peace, safety and security in the defence and security markets by delivering and supporting complex, multidisciplinary systems in partnership with local and international security and defence players.
Translating opportunities into profitable projects will require significant capacity building. Recruitment, training and skills development programmes are envisaged providing the opportunity to strengthen the Denel Group's transformation agenda. Black women and youth, in particular, will be targeted with preferential procurement and focussed enterprise supplier development ensuring previously marginalised groups become "enduring suppliers".
