Our OPSEC Policy

Post by Admin on Tue Dec 28, 2010 8:34 pm

Since this site is open to all branches of the military, we use a very general OPSEC policy. The command you are affiliated with may be more or less strict, but we ask that you adhere to these policies when using this site. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to PM Admin.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Never talk about military movements. This includes deployments, redeployments, R&R, missions and training exercises. Troop movements, whether stateside or overseas, should never be discussed.

Never release dates. The dates when our troops are involved in a troop movement should never be released. Be aware that "next Tuesday", "next week" or "in 9 days" all constitute releasing dates and are a violation of OPSEC.

Never give specific locations. While many military units allow family members and friends to know the country where their military member is serving, specific locations within that country should not be released. To say he is in Iraq is acceptable. To release the name of the camp in Iraq is not.

Always practice OPSEC, especially online. OPSEC violations are more prevalent online than anywhere else. Many postings on message boards, social network sites and blogs can easily violate operational security, especially since these postings are usually time stamped and dated.

Always be aware of pieces to the puzzle. Though you may have released very little information in your last blog or message board post, a quick glance through your history on that site could reveal pertinent information needed to complete the puzzle such as unit name or location. It is easy to fit together the puzzle pieces online.

Please be aware that these policies may be edited/updated at any time, without notice. Always check for updates to this thread. We also urge you to be cautious when giving out personal information. Always be mindful of PERSEC as well as OPSEC.
