Important security reminder
Does your practice adhere to privacy and confidentiality obligations?
26 June 2017
In addition to the usual privacy and confidentiality obligations you are required to abide with when providing healthcare to the ADF, there are some additional security obligations that you need to be aware of.
The ADF operating environment is unlike many other workplaces, due to the specific nature of the information generated under the GHS Contract, additional and more stringent measures of security are required to ensure integrity and protection of this information. By ensuring that you have good security practices in place, and by meeting your security responsibilities, you too play a part in protecting Australia’s national interests. Your security obligations are detailed in the GHS Operational Procedures and provide a guide to help your practice uphold a robust framework to handle highly confidential information for ADF personnel.
