IRAP is a program of activities sponsored by the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) culminating in the endorsement and registration of individuals as competent to assess information security systems in accordance with Australian Government information security standards and policy documents.
Candidates qualifying as IRAP registered assessors are endorsed to carry out the following types of assessment work:
- Gateway certifications
- Network/system assessments
- Gatekeeper assessments
- FedLink audits, and
- FedLink connection assessments
IRAP registered assessors undertake refresher training and are reassessed every 12 months. This is done through a maintenance program that provides assurance that assessors have satisfactorily completed any mandatory training maintenance requirements throughout the 12 months of their registration and are up to date with ISM/policy changes. The performance of work within the scope of the Program carried out by assessors will also be subject to review at the time of re-registration.
Saltbush Training has been providing training to IRAP assessors since the program’s inception. Saltbush currently offers an online version of the IRAP refresher course.
