Australian Government Personnel Security
The purpose of personnel security is to provide a level of assurance as to the honesty, trustworthiness, maturity, tolerance and loyalty of individuals who access Australian Government resources.
Personnel security aims to:
- reduce the risk of loss, damage or compromise of Australian Government resources by providing assurance about the suitability of personnel authorised to access those resources
- create an environment where those accessing Australian Government resources are aware of the responsibilities that come with that access and abide with their obligations under the Protective Security Policy Framework
- minimise potential for misuse of Australian Government resources through inadvertent or deliberate unauthorised disclosure
- support a culture of protective security.
