Dear DP FOIA,

"I have been asked to seek clarification from you relating to some of the information that you've asked for
2) Please clarify your definition of cyber security providers
3) Please clarify your definition of cyber security vendor(s)."

Providers = resellers, distributors, value added resellers, partners
Vendors = the creator of the tools and products

You may have one or two providers, that provide you with multiple products from vendors e.g. firewalls, scanning tools, end point protection, monitoring, anti-virus.

In some cases, for example when a vendors product is purchased directly, the provider and vendor could be the same.

Yours sincerely,

James Noland
