Information security annual return


The 2019-2020 Information security annual return is to be completed and returned to by 30 September 2020.

This year's annual return has links to templates within the spreadsheet to help departments complete the return. A list of all these supporting templates are available at the bottom of this page. Please note users will need to sign in as these supporting templates are only available to Queensland Government employees.

The 2019-2020 annual return was updated to version 1.1.0 on 27 August 2020.  The changes to the spreadsheet are minimal and do no pose an additional burden on agencies.  The changes made are:

  • Agencies have a choice to either submit an External E8 report or complete the PR3 red tab - the option to use the External E8 report template as a self-assurance was an error and has bee removed.
  • The formula in the External E8 report is now aligned with the red PR3 tab to ensure consistent measuring.
  • The requirement to use QGCDG as recommended vendor for E8 providors has been removed.  Agencies can engage a third party of their choice provided the report is submitted using the QGCDG approved E8 reporting template.
