The structure of the training

Basalt offers a two-day training course in security screening. The training is based on current legislation and an accepted and experience-based method. The training includes an overview of the various steps in the security screening with a particular focus on interview methodology. Practical elements that aim for you as a participant to practice your skills are an important part of the training.

Why is an education in security screening needed?

For your business, it is important not only to hire people with the right skills, but also people who are reliable from a security point of view. An incorrect recruitment can mean great damage to the business and negative publicity for an authority – or a company’s brand – with information leakage, lost revenue and significant costs for the business as a result. The Security Protection Act (2018:585) requires that the protection of security-sensitive operations must be ensured, regardless of whether it is in the private or public sector.

What does personnel security mean?

Personnel security is one of the security protection measures in the Security Protection Act. The purpose of personnel security is to prevent persons who are not reliable from a security point of view from participating in an activity where they can gain access to security classified information or in an activity that is for some other reason security sensitive. Personnel security must also ensure that those who participate in security-sensitive activities have sufficient knowledge of security protection.

Personnel security measures, in addition to the register check carried out by the Security Police, can also be taken as operational security measures outside the scope of the Security Protection Act to prevent people who are not reliable from a security point of view participating in the business.

Testimonial - Hilda Vidmark
It was a good mix between briefings and application as we had to discuss different cases in smaller groups. It was very positive to also be able to learn from the others in the group.

Testimonial - Mattias Brink
The training leaders were competent, and both group work and discussions yielded a lot, especially since the course participants came from both the private and public sectors. It gave a greater understanding of the various challenges that exist.
