CyDR off-line forms for accreditation, risk balance cases and tooling change requests

Cyber Defence and Risk (CyDR) forms for requesting accreditation of an IT system, submitting a risk balance case (RBC) or requesting a change to DART (Defence Assurance Risk Tool) or DIMDb (Defence Incident Management Database).



The accreditation request and risk balance case (RBC) off-line forms are designed for use by those Ministry of Defence and industry personnel who are unable to access the Defence Assurance Risk Tool (DART). This approach ensures the information assurance (IA) maturity evidence is equal for all parties throughout the end to end process.

Where an RBC is required to cover the transfer of information between different locations, the movements form should be used. In all other cases, please use the information form.

Remember that information categorised as official sensitive or above must not be transmitted over the internet.

The CyDR tools change request form is designed to allow Industry personnel to register proposed changes to DART and DIMDb (sometimes known as Blackthorn). Information submitted on this form should not exceed official.

The forms are designed to be as intuitive as possible, but if you have any queries or require further guidance, please email or telephone 01480 52451, extension 4564.
