The purpose of protective security is to protect vital national security interests from threats primarily related to acts of terrorism, espionage and sabotage. The Norwegian Civil Security Clearance Authority serves to promote a resilient and safe society.

The directorate reports to the Ministry of Justice and Public Security.

Only administrative bodies, or other entities subject to the Security Act, may request security clearance.
