Defence and security

There is an intricate link between safety and security and the country’s continued socio-economic development. The CSIR contributes to keeping South Africa safe and secure by supporting the building of a capable state and developing technologies to ensure safer communities.

The CSIR focuses on protection against cyber-security threats, the development of systems for the effective sharing of information across different components of the security forces and helping to ensure that government is a smart buyer and user of technology in this space. The organisation provides science, engineering and technology support for the continuous improvement of the country’s armed forces.
