In focus - Security Industry
The security industry in 2022 has over 6,889 businesses contributing $11 billion to the Australian economy. With 153,000 licensed security professionals the security industry is significantly larger than both the Australian police force and defence forces.
The security industry has a significant role to play in responding to domestic, family and sexualised violence.
What we understand about domestic, family and sexualised violence informs how we respond; it influences how we design products, services and systems. It influences how we communicate about those products, services and systems.

The readiness and quality of security provider responses to domestic, family and sexualised violence matters. Every provider. Any place.
Making a meaningful difference
Security providers can make a meaningful difference through their workplace responses and customer/client responses supporting thousands of employees and community members who may need access to information and to support. Informed by lived-experience insights, security providers can strategically refine and evolve how they contribute to a more cohesive ecosystem response.
