Sopra Steria to provide secure information system for the National Nuclear Laboratory

London, 6 June 2014: Sopra Steria wins 7-year contract with the National Nuclear Laboratory to run a secure information system. Sopra Steria’s specialist expertise in secure communications was a key factor in this win with a new client in the energy sector.

Sopra Steria, a leading provider of IT-enabled business services, today announced that it has won a contract with the National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL) to provide and support a secure information system for NNL at its Sellafield site. The contract, starting this year and running until 2021, demonstrates Sopra Steria’s expanding footprint in secure systems thanks to its specialist expertise and commitment to building trusted partnerships with clients.

A key factor in Sopra Steria being selected was their experience as a trusted systems integrator for the design, installation, commissioning and through-life support of similar accredited systems for a range of UK Government client organisations.

Both parties share similar missions and values in their respective industries, steeped in business collaboration. Like NNL, Sopra Steria aspires to be at the forefront of innovation and provides truly independent and agnostic solutions for its clients.

Chris Bates, Managing Director of Defence and Emergency Services at Sopra Steria, said: “Our experience of running sensitive information and communication systems for both public and private sector clients will reassure NNL that they’ve made the right selection of partner. It’s a highly complex area, but we bring the specialist skills that make the complex simple. We look forward to working closely with NNL in future, to help them achieve their business goals and deliver secure services to their clients.”

Jeremy Davison, Head of Security at NNL, commented: “We see Sopra Steria as a trusted partner with its strong track record of running secure information systems for a number of Government organisations. The cultural fit was also an important factor for us. We’re confident Sopra Steria will provide a cost-effective, highly secure service that will ensure our assets are properly protected.”
