Connley Walker Security Consulting Blog: Is Your Security Consultant Licensed?

We have recently noticed an increasing number of Australian companies offering security consulting services where the company isn’t licensed, staff aren’t licensed or management isn’t licensed. We have come across two instances in the last month where unlicensed companies have been offering services in competition with us. One was even advertising fake licence numbers. It is not only an offence to sell or provide security consulting services without a licence (or registration in the case of Victoria), but it is also an offence to hire an unlicensed company.

Company master licences and individual licences must be held in every state or territory where the services are being offered.

Connley Walker Pty Ltd is meticulous in relation to legal compliance and as a result is licensed in all states and territories that require it.
