  • OPSEC - How it applies to recruits and social media

    General Operational Security (OPSEC) Rules.

    OPSEC Rules:

    • Don’t discuss future destinations or ports of call (your basic training location and date you arrive comes into play here)

    • Don’t discuss future operations, exercises or missions (including Family Day Cruises)

    • Don’t discuss dates and times of when we will be in port or conducting exercises

    • Don’t discuss readiness issues and numbers

    • Don’t discuss specific training equipment or lack thereof

    • Don’t speculate about future operations

    • Don’t spread rumors about current, future, or past operations or movements

    • Don’t discuss deployment or homecoming dates

    • Don’t assume the enemy is not trying to collect information; they always are

    • Don't discuss Security Procedures, movements, or arms

    • Be smart, use your head, and always think OPSEC when using email, phone, chat rooms and message boards. There is no guarantee that a chat room or forum described as 'military' has any security for transmitting information or restricting membership to military personnel and their families only.
