Attestation 2021

In 2021, Victorian public sector organisations are required to submit an Attestation, in which they attest to the continuation of information security activities outlined in their previous Protective Data Security Plan (PDSP).


The single-organisation Attestation form for 2021 is now available below. This form is suitable for those organisations that have not undergone significant change.

If you require a multi-organisation Attestation form, please contact the Information Security Unit at

Submissions are due to OVIC by 31 August 2021.

Significant change

For organisations that have undergone a significant change to their operating environment or information security risks (such as a restructure or Machinery of Government), they are required to notify OVIC and submit a full, out-of-cycle PDSP.
