Security Risk Management Workshop

This one-day workshop has been developed by DS&VS to bridge the gap of knowledge between policy requirements of security risk management and practical application within the Defence context. Using Defence specific terminology, tools and templates, the Security Risk Management Workshop allows those with a security risk management requirement, a contextualised understanding and the ability to begin their own Security Risk Assessment and the resultant management of that plan.

Requirement for Training

Security risk management is conducted for a variety of reasons across Defence, to undertake Base Planning or Resident Unit Security Plans, for capability development and project work, including with defence industry, and for building works or Certification and Accreditation of Facilities. No matter the purpose, Defence has a standardised security risk management process applicable to all Groups and Services. This Workshop aids personnel tasked with conducting security risk management by providing the latest advice and resources that will support informed judgements for the management of security risk in Defence.  

Who should undertake training?

The Workshop is for Control Officers, Control Implementers and Commanders/Managers who will be engaging with security risk in their implementation of DSPF principles, processes and controls. As Security Officers advise and support; it would be beneficial for them to undertake the training as well.

  • Mandatory Security Awareness course within the last 12 months; and
  • Classified Document Handling course within the last 12 months.
