Exclamation OPSEC and PERSEC

Alright everyone, we are going to have a little chat about OPSEC and PERSEC.

Please read through this WHOLE post and even research it on your own... this is a BIG deal not only here, but anywhere else you post anything or talk about anything. OPSEC does not only apply to this site, it applies EVERYWHERE!

OPSEC is the first and most important thing that you need to know about deployments. Breaking OPSEC will NOT be tolerated on NavyDep. Below are a few key things that are not allowed, they are the most common things that we have people post. This also applies not just to the main boreds, but also PM's, blogs, and pretty much anywhere else on the internet.

Do not post the exact day that your ship is leaving unless you have already left.
Do not post the exact day that your ship is coming home until you are already home.
The smallest time frame that you can say is the name of the month.

If you have any questions feel free to contact myself or another staff member at any time, or ask your question in this thread and someone will respond. There are no stupid questions when it comes to OPSEC. I would rather people ask and me have to repeat myself a million times then having anyone post a violation.

If you see a OPSEC violation report the post, the staff will handle it immediately.

Also a note about PERSEC:

PERSEC entails protecting personal information that’s not strictly related to military operations but could endanger an active-duty member or the member’s family.

It is strongly advised on this site by both staff and members that you do not give out your ship, last name, phone number, address, or any specific personal information to people you do not know.

This is plain common sense in just every day life whether you have a family member in the military or not.

The old saying "loose lips sink ships" still holds true today. Keep yourself, your family and your unit safe by keeping the information you know to yourself. You never know who is lurking and gathering information on message boards, myspace pages, and profiles. Better safe than sorry!

Usernames - many people on this site use their last name as part of their username. This is strongly discouraged. If you have your last name in your username, you can message me or Craig to request it be changed.
