CHAPTER  10 SECURITY “You have been given two ears, two eyes, and but one tongue–to the end that you should hear and see more than you speak.” This chapter contains information about the security of  documents  and  personnel  in  the  Navy.  The information  will  help  you  to  become  familiar  with  the individuals  within  the  chain  of  command  who  are responsible for making sure security requirements are fulfilled. The chapter also covers security briefings and debriefings. THE NAVY SECURITY PROGRAM The basis of the information and personnel security program is the fact that there is official information truly essential to the national security that requires control of its dissemination so the information will not be used to the detriment of the United States. To protect this information from disclosure to any persons except those  whose  official  duties  require  knowledge  and possession  and  who  have  been  determined  to  be trustworthy,  it  is  classified.  A  level  of  classification  is assigned from which flows standards for protection under   the   varying   conditions   that   may   arise   in connection   with   its   use,   dissemination,   storage, transmission, and disposal. Only that information that is truly essential to the national security maybe classified, and then only to the extent and for the period of time necessary. All  personnel  who  have  been  granted  access  to classified material must be knowledgeable as to security orientation, education, and training. When the Navy security program is in place and working as it should be, it  will  accomplish  the  following  goals: . Familiarize all personnel who are granted access to  classified  information  with  proper  security  measures necessary  in  performing  their  duties l   Remind   all   levels   of   command   of   their responsibility  for  ensuring  that  classified  information  is effectively  and  economically  safeguarded .  Ensure  conscientious  and  willing  compliance with  security  regulations,  procedures,  and  practices . Remind commands of their responsibilities in proper  classification,  upgrading,  downgrading,  and declassification   procedures   as   outlined   in   the Department of the Navy Information and Personnel Security  Program  Regulation,  OPNAVINST  5510.1H l Inform personnel who have access to classified material  of  the  hazards  involved  due  to  unauthorized disclosure  and  impress  on  these  personnel  their responsibility in protecting classified documents . Inform personnel of their responsibility to report attempts by foreign agents to obtain U.S. classified information . Familiarize personnel with the techniques and devices used by foreign agencies to obtain classified U.S. information . Advise personnel against using the telephone as a means of transmitting or discussing classified material l Make personnel aware of the disciplinary action that  may  result  from  unauthorized  disclosure  of classified  documents RESPONSIBILITY The Secretary of the Navy (SECNAV) is respon- sible for establishing and maintaining an information security program and a personnel security program in compliance with the provisions of Executive orders, public laws, National Security Council, Department of Defense, and other security directives regarding the protection of classified information, acceptance and retention of personnel, and assignment to sensitive duties. The   Chief   of   Naval   Operations   (CNO)   is responsible to SECNAV for information and personnel security. The Special Assistant for Naval Investigative Matters  and  Security  (OP-09N)  has  been  designated  as the official primarily responsible for making sure that there is an effective program and that it complies with all the directives issued by higher authority.
