What is OPSEC?

Operations Security (OPSEC) is a process that safeguards sensitive unclassified information. It allows us to identify our critical information, determine if this information if obtained by adversaries could be interpreted to be useful to them, and if so then executes measures that eliminate or reduce the capability of the adversary’s ability to utilize said information.

Bottom Line Up Front: By not protecting sensitive unclassified information we put ourselves and the mission at risk of failure and could possibly cost the warfighters their lives!

The OPSEC program at DLA Land Maritime is a continuous awareness campaign aimed at educating employees on the importance of protecting sensitive unclassified information so it doesn’t fall into the hands of our adversaries. Some of the tools at our disposal are briefings (i.e. Directors Calls and New Employee Orientations), the OPSEC booth or just venturing out into the work spaces to interact with employees regarding the use of good security practices.

Utilizing the information provided in these tools will help us in preventing our adversaries from collecting information that could give them the opportunity to exploit our capabilities, intentions, deficiencies and planned operations.

We stand ready to assist in any way possible to help protect our information to ensure mission success!
