As a result of the report and other investigative work, a series of improvements have been identified, some of which have been or are being implemented, while others are being prioritised and resourced. These improvements will enhance the security of the Defence Recruitment System (DRS).

Due to the nature of the report, it will not be published as its disclosure would, or would be likely to prejudice the capability, effectiveness or security of the Armed Forces, as well as prejudice commercial interests.
