Australian Government physical security

The Australian Government requires a variety of resources, such as people, information and assets, to make and implement its decisions. Australian Government entities hold significant resources on behalf of the government and the Australian people to fulfil government functions—for example, to develop policy, establish or implement programs, or provide services to the public. The government expects entities to create and maintain an appropriate physical security environment for the protection of these functions and associated resources. The appropriate physical security environment should support the efficient and effective performance of agency outputs, without compromising the application of protective security measures.
