UKCeB's mission is to transform secure information sharing for through life collaboration in defence acquisition and support. It's a not-for-profit, membership organisation comprising over 600 individuals and 70 Defence & Aerospace companies (see Members), plus the Ministry of Defence (MOD) and related Trade Associations. With a mature Governance structure, Council and senior MOD/Industry representatives setting the agenda, UKCeB's Task Force actively pursues coordinated activities across a range of groupings for Team Defence. It's both a catalyst and a facilitator, promoting joint Industry/MOD collaboration.

UKCeB addresses issues of current import and anticipates those expected to have future impact. For example, the implications of new incentivised contracting models such as Contracting for Availability (or Capability) on security, information management and collaborative working are explored, for the benefit of all members. UKCeB has a non-partisan role in bringing together the right people to address issues of common concern. It is a torch bearer for the use of global Standards and promotes practical initiatives such the secure communications tools emerging from the Transglobal Secure Collaboration Program (TSCP) and the Logistics Coherence Information Architecture (LCIA).

The UKCeB-led Working Groups generate a wealth of information that is collated and made available for members: minutes, meeting agendas, attendees, presentations, briefings, policy and review documents. In addition, UKCeB files reports from defence-related seminars, conferences and events that its Task Force attends. These resources enable members to be well-informed, better-connected and more productive. UKCeB's website provides a '24/7' opportunity for research and participation in this information community, complementing the networking exchanges enjoyed through active participation in its working forums.
