Protective markings are mandatory for all Victorian public sector organisations under the Victorian Protective Data Security Standards (VPDSS). The standards are administered by the Office of the Victorian Information Commissioner (OVIC).

If you receive information from DELWP that has a protective marking, you can contact the originator to understand the security requirements of the information.

From time to time, you may also receive enquiries from DELWP staff about the sensitivity of your information. There may be a need to confirm the privacy and security requirements of the information you have provided to DELWP.
