Protective Data Security Plan
Victorian public sector (VPS) organisations have a responsibility to effectively identify and manage information security risks across the information lifecycle.
The security risk profile assessment process is a foundational activity that needs to be undertaken prior to developing a PDSP.
To find out how to complete the Security Risk Profile Assessment (SRPA) process, refer to our Practitioner Guide on Information Security Risk Management.
When completing the 2022 PDSP, consider the activities undertaken during the 1 July 2020 – 30 June 2022 reporting period.
Organisations are expected to submit a copy of a PDSP to OVIC between 1 July 2022 – 31 August 2022.

We have developed a 2022 Multi-organisation PDSP Reporting How-to Guide to step organisations through the strengthened multi-organisation reporting process.
This guide outlines key actions needed to be undertaken by a primary organisation, subsidiary organisation, and the Information Security Unit.

When organisations experience a significant change to their operations, the risks to their information assets and their protective data security obligations can change as a result.
Organisations must notify OVIC of incidents with a business impact level (BIL) of 2 (limited) or higher that have an adverse impact on the confidentiality, integrity or availability of public sector information.
