About the Business and Government Liaison Unit

The Business and Government Liaison Unit (BGLU) is the principal interface between the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) and government and industry stakeholders. The BGLU provides information via a number of means including a subscriber-controlled website, ASIO-hosted briefings, face to face engagement and participation in joint government and industry forums. All these mechanisms are aimed a providing risk management decision-makers within government and industry with the most current security intelligence and protective security advice to assist them to: 

  • recognise and respond to national security threats; 
  • develop appropriate risk mitigation strategies; and 
  • provide informed briefings to executives and staff.

The BGLU secure website operates on a free subscription basis. The BGLU website contains intelligence-backed reporting on the domestic and international security environment. This reporting is drawn from the full range of ASIO's information holdings and expertise (including the multi-agency National Threat Assessment Centre, ASIO's protective security area (T4) and the Counter-Espionage and Interference Division) and some foreign intelligence partner agency reports.
