What is IPSA?

The Industry Personnel Security Assurance (IPSA) is a way to make sure people who have gone through National Security Vetting (NSV) are well looked after and managed, just like vetted staff in the government.

It’s about keeping things secure by making sure these individuals get the support and attention they need, keeping our operations safe.

IPSA includes steps to check security clearances, keep everyone up to date on security rules, and help anyone who needs it with their security status.

It is being rolled out across the UK, as a result all Vetting Information has a classification of OFFICIAL – SENSITIVE as stated in Para 8 of the IPSA Policy, and organisations processing and handling this information will be accountable for providing security and assurance for this data.
