Personnel security

Personnel security is one element of good protective security management. Effective personnel security facilitates the sharing of Australian Government resources, and is an essential mitigation tool to the threat posed by trusted insiders.

To achieve the PSPF personnel security outcome, each entity aims to ensure its employees and contractors are suitable to access Australian Government resources, and meet an appropriate standard of integrity and honesty through implementing the three personnel security core requirements.
