Security is everyone’s responsibility. If you see information on the public internet that you believe may have been released without appropriate authorization, report the matter immediately to your chain of command so that mitigating action can be taken. If information is sensitive, personal or operational in nature, report the matter immediately via the chain of command to the local security officer.
Regardless of profile, you should always safeguard:
Details About Your Work
Information such as establishment/unit locations, telephone numbers, ranks, unit strength, position details or role, could be used to target your workplace. Do not post details concerning security procedures. Check photos do not contain ID cards/official passes, keys, computer screens and other potentially sensitive materials or equipment.
During operations and missions, information protection becomes even more important, and attempts to gather information by others may become more determined. Do not release online information about: operational programs, deployment details, mission-specific information, capability shortfalls, casualty details, morale.
Social media is a gateway into your life, and provides details that can compromise your safety. Think about what you post and who can see it. You can look to the DoD Guidelines for more information.
