  2. 2. UNCLASSIFIED OVERVIEW OPSEC & the Holidays OPSEC & Shopping Presents! OPSEC at Home OPSEC & Travel „Twas the Week before Christmas…. 2
  3. 3. UNCLASSIFIED OPSEC & THE HOLIDAYS OPSEC is the Process we use to Identify and Protect Sensitive Information from our Adversaries. While we Primarily use this Process at work, we can Apply the same Methodology to Protecting our Family and our Homes over the Upcoming Holiday Season. 3
  4. 4. UNCLASSIFIED OPSEC & THE HOLIDAYS With the Hustle and Bustle of the Holiday Season, Sometimes we Forget About Common Sense Security Practices. The next few Slides are some Reminders that will help keep your Holiday a safe and Enjoyable one. 4
  5. 5. UNCLASSIFIED OPSEC & SHOPPING OPSEC and Street Smarts are Synonymous. With OPSEC you Identify key Information our Adversaries Might use Against us, then take Measures to Safeguard that Information. When Shopping, be Aware as you take cash from ATMs or pay for Items with your Credit card. Make sure to put Receipts in a safe Place or Destroy them Properly. 5
  6. 6. UNCLASSIFIED OPSEC & SHOPPING If Carrying a Large Amount of cash, keep a Portion of the Money Separate from your Wallet in case you get pick Pocketed or lose your Wallet. If you Purchased so many Presents that you have to take a trip to the car and Unload your Packages to Continue Shopping, make sure you Place the Items in your Trunk and out of Sight. It is also Smart to Relocate your Vehicle to Another Parking Space in case Someone Followed you. 6
  7. 7. UNCLASSIFIED PRESENTS! Giving Family Members Presents help Burglars Target you. Trash can make you a Target! Boxes from Items like Jewelry or Electronics (such as Computer, Television, and Stereo Boxes) left Curbside for Trash Collection Provide good Indicators to Potential Burglars About what high Value Items are Located in the Household. Break down the Boxes, Throw them in a bag, or put them out just Before Trash Collection time. 7
  8. 8. UNCLASSIFIED OPSEC AT HOME Things often Become Hectic Around the Holidays. Sometimes we Completely Forget About basic Security. Be Alert to Public Works Crews and Other Workers Requesting Access to your Residence. Verify Their Identity Before Allowing Entry to your home. If you can, Write down the License Plate Number of Suspicious Vehicles and note the Description of Individuals Lurking in the Neighborhood. 8
  9. 9. UNCLASSIFIED OPSEC AT HOME When Socializing at Parties During the Holidays, do not talk “shop” Around Those who do not have a need to know, and be wary of Attempts to Elicit Information, even from Friends and Family. Report Suspicious Activity to the Police or Local law Enforcement. 9
  10. 10. UNCLASSIFIED OPSEC & TRAVEL If Traveling this Holiday Season, do not Forget to Think OPSEC! Refrain from Using Military Duffel bags or bags with Government Patches or Logos. If Possible, use Concealed Luggage tags. Do not use rank or Title to Reserve Airline Tickets and Hotel Rooms. Keep a low Profile in Dress and Demeanor. 10
  11. 11. UNCLASSIFIED OPSEC & TRAVEL Be Cautious About Giving out Information Regarding Travel Plans to Those who do not have a “Need to Know”. Leave your home with a Lived-in look. Use Timers for Lights, TV, or Radio. Have a Neighbor Collect your mail and Newspapers or Place a Temporary stop on your mail and Newspaper Delivery. Be Alert and Report Suspicious Activity. 11
  12. 12. UNCLASSIFIED ‘Twas the week before Christmas and all Through the Neighborhood Thieves were out Prowling they were Looking for Goods! Mailbox over Flowing and Newspapers Piled high -Indicators this Family was away and this Caught the Thief’s eye.
