How to lodge a DISP application.
Prior to considering the lodgement of their DISP application with defence, it is vital to ensure you have adequately implemented DISP's requirements for:
- Governance Documentation
- Personnel Security
- ICT and Cyber Security
- Physical Security
Lodgement of the DISP application prior to appropriate auditing of systems and practices may prove costly and result in Defence's rejection of your application.
Note: Defence allows companies to undertake this process without the use of external advisory services. Whilst acceptable by defence, many organisations deem the risks associated with this approach to be unacceptable.
Lodgement of your DISP application could begin with obtaining a DISP email address for communication with defence regarding your application.
