We all must recognize our role in this digital environment. How many of us have one or more USB memory devices? How many of us make copies of information or work on a CD? And how many of us leave the workplace with these items without them being encrypted, making their loss more painful than just the resultant loss of productivity; the potential loss of sensitive information.
How many of us perform official business on our home email systems, which are not as secure as our networks? While we all are required to take privacy and information assurance training, do we actually take it to heart that we are all Cyber Warriors and as such must act accordingly? Whether we engage the network in a classified or unclassified environment, information security and assurance are everyone’s responsibility.
We have training available to us and countless standard operating procedures; but, are we doing enough? Information security cannot be managed by the Naval Network Warfare Command and the Marine Corps Security and Operations Center alone. We all have a role in this Information Age and a responsibility to protect our information.
