Mobile devices and OPSEC
Mobile devices are being introduced into the Department of Defense at an astonishing rate. The Defense Logistics Agency defines mobile devices as a wireless-enabled portable device. These include but are not limited to iPhones, iPads and tablets.  This fast paced integration has caused a paradigm shift to occur within DOD and DLA. Our adversaries target these types of devices because they can process information with the same capabilities as a computer. To combat this, DLA has established policy with the issuance of DLAI 8130.01 Mobile Device Management. The policy covers DLA military, civilian and contractor personnel.

National Denim Day
Apr. 24 
Join us in saying there's no excuse and never an invitation to rape by wearing denim on April 24. Denim Day is a call to action resulting from a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a sexual assault convention was overturned based on the justices belief that the victim's jeans were so tight that she must have helped the attacker remove them, thereby implying consent.  The women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans the next day in solidarity of the victim.  In April 1999, Denim Day was established in the United States. Today, Denim Day is promoted worldwide in response to this case as a protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault. 

Teal Tuesdays
Every Tuesday in April 

Engage your voice and support sexual assault awareness and prevention by simply wearing teal every Tuesday in April.
