What is DISP?
DISP is a government standard created to ensure Australian businesses have the security frameworks and procedures to work with Australian Defence Organisations.
It covers modules across the following areas:
- Personnel Security
- Physical Security
- Information & Cyber Security
- Security Governance
Each area will be assessed in line with the level of security clearance required. This starts at the Entry Level, the baseline for all Defence contract work, and extends to Highly Classified/ Top Secret.
Do I need ongoing DISP compliance?
You will be required to maintain DISP certification for the duration of your time working with the Defence or other organisations that require DISP clearance. DISP certification is not a one-time event. It is a continuous process that requires businesses to assess and improve their security and compliance practices constantly. Ongoing DISP compliance is necessary because the security landscape is continuously changing. New threats and vulnerabilities are always emerging, so businesses must constantly adapt their security measures to stay ahead of the curve.
What DISP Membership levels does my business need?
The DISP Membership levels that your business needs depend on the type of work you do and the level of security required.
There are four DISP Membership levels:
- Entry Level: This level is for businesses that do not handle sensitive information or work with the Australian Government or Defence.
- Protected: This level is for businesses that handle sensitive information but do not work with the Australian Government or Defence.
- Secret: This level is for businesses that handle sensitive information and work with the Australian Government or Defence.
- Top Secret: This level is for businesses that handle top-secret information and work with the Australian Government or Defence.
This will usually be made clear during any tender processes. You can also check directly with the DISP office or talk to us about your requirements.
