CND have a strong relationship with the Royal Air Force Police (RAFP) stretching back over 25 years. After leaving the RAF and setting up CND, Managing Director Andy Cuff recruited RAFP Senior NCOs to staff a number of our partner's Cyber Security Operations Centres. Whilst here at CND, we employ former members of the RAFP as experts in Counter-Intelligence and cyber security compliance.
A few years ago, when the RAFP announced that it would be making staff redundant, we took our entire recruitment team to a seminar at RAF Henlow to offer advice on preparing to leave the RAF and entering the civvy street.
In 2015, in recognition of our longstanding support, the Provost Marshal of the Royal Air Force approached us to request our sponsorship of the Securing The Skies Trophy. This would be awarded to the RAFP NCO who had made the most significant contribution to Protective Security during the course of the previous year, including cyber and Information Assurance
