PURPOSE   OF   SECURITY PROGRAM The  purpose  of  the  Navy’s  Security  Program  is  to ensure   official   information   of   the   Department   of   the Navy  relating  to  national  security  is  protected  to  the extent   and   for   a   period   of   time   as   may   be   necessary. The  Department   of   the   Navy   Information   and Personnel  Security  Program  Regulation   establishes the   basis   for   the   identification   of   information   to   be protected;   prescribes   a   progressive   system   for classification,   downgrading,   and   declassification; prescribes   safeguarding   policies   and   procedures   to   be followed;  and  sets  up  a  monitoring  system  to  ensure the   effectiveness   of   the   program. The   Security   Program   basically   deals   with   the safeguarding   of   information   that   cannot   be   known   or made   available   to   foreign   governments   or   foreign nationals  because  of  the  threat  that  such  information might  be  used  to  the  detriment  of  the  United  States. The  security  of  the  United  States  in  general,  and  of naval  operations  in  particular,  depends  in  part  upon  the success   attained   in   the   safeguarding   of   classified information. Information   may   be   compromised   through careless   talk,   through   actual   subversion   by   enemy agents,   by   careless   handling   of   classified   material,   and in   various   other   ways.
