OFFICE OF THE ADJUTANT GENERAL OPSEC Countermeasures Take a close look at all privacy settings. Set security options to allow visibility to friends only.

Do not reveal sensitive information about yourself such as schedules and event locations. Ask, What could the wrong person do with this information? and Could it compromise the safety of myself, my family or my unit?

Closely review photos before they go online. Make sure they do not give away sensitive information which could be dangerous if released. Make sure to talk to family about operations security and what can and cannot be posted.

Videos can go viral quickly, make sure they dont give away sensitive information. OFFICE OF THE ADJUTANT GENERAL OPSEC Countermeasures E-mail can be intercepted and read by an adversary, unless its encrypted. MS Outlook can encrypt e-mail with a digital certificate. Other encryption is also an option.

OFFICE OF THE ADJUTANT GENERAL OPSEC Countermeasures Telephones are NOT secure! Cell phones, cordless phones and land-lines can all be compromised. Face to Face contact is! Limit what you discuss on the phone because you never know

who could be listening in on you. OFFICE OF THE ADJUTANT GENERAL To Summarize OFFICE OF THE ADJUTANT GENERAL Now repeat after me

OFFICE OF THE ADJUTANT GENERAL QUESTIONS? There is a fine line between posting too much information and not enough. We need YOU to help keep your unit right in the middle. OFFICE OF THE ADJUTANT GENERAL
