Personnel and People Security comprises an integrated set of policies, procedures, interventions and effects which seek to enhance an organisation or site’s protective security by

(a) mitigating the risk of workers (insiders) exploiting their legitimate access to an organisation’s assets for unauthorised purposes,

(b) optimising the use of the workforce (and, where appropriate, the public) to be a force multiplier in helping to prevent, detect and deter security threats, and

(c) detecting, deterring and disrupting external hostile actors during the reconnaissance phase.
