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.

Good to see these spelled out. I actually didn't know what PERSEC was, I now assume that's personal security?

A lot of people think OPSEC is an outdated thing, but the threat is very real. Not too long ago, a squadron here in Jacksonville posted a photo on their website of an "item" mounted underneath one of their P-3s as it took off. The photo was taken by an enlisted member authorized to post some photos... and the "item" was in general view on the tarmac. What the photographer didn't realize was that the "item" was also part of an SCI program... within 24 hours of going up, the squadron website was overloaded with visits from IP addresses from China, Russia, and several other countries.

Wow. That's amazing and a little concerning that so many people are found a simple picture like that. When you put it like it that it puts it in a whole different perspective.

Be careful who you friend on social media as well... most of us have received a few friend requests from females in Asian and Eastern European countries. It seems stupidly obvious, but younger Sailors can, and do, fall for it.
