We are DISP Members

ArcBlue Defence is a member of the Defence Industry Security Program (DISP). This means that we are able to directly sponsor our contractors for Australian Defence Security clearances up to NV 2, and allows us to ‘hold’ security clearances. For our clients within Defence, being a member of the DISP provides assurance that ArcBlue Defence meets their security obligations when engaging in Defence projects, contracts and tenders. For our current Defence contractors, we now have the ability to ‘hold’ their security clearances, or upgrade them allowing them to progress their career within the Defence sector. It also provides a great opportunity for professionals not currently working in Defence to gain their security clearance and build their Defence career with ArcBlue Defence.
