    Question PERSEC

    Advertisements
    Alright everyone, we are going to have a little chat about PERSEC.

    First, if you do not know what PERSEC is, please read the following quote:
    NOTE: While this was taken from an Army article, it applies to ALL branches.

    PERSEC
    PERSEC is also known as personal security. Like OPSEC, this involves guarding the information that you know. Do not give out your soldier’s name along with rank. This includes blacking out his or her name tape and rank in pictures. If he or she is in a special operations unit, you should also black out any unit affiliation.


    Be vague on the internet about your personal information as an Army wife or Army family member. This is plain common sense in just every day life whether you have a family member in the military or not.


    The old saying "loose lips sink ships" still holds true today. Keep your soldier, your family and his or her unit safe by keeping the information you know to yourself. You never know who is lurking and gathering information on message boards, myspace pages, and profiles. Better safe than sorry!
    Second, the ONLY rule that MSOS currently has when it comes to PERSEC is that you are NOT allowed to have a last name in your screen name (yours or your SO's). Reports of PERSEC that is anything other than a last name in a screen name is not a violation. It would be better to inform the person disclosing the information that it is best not to do so and link them to this thread.

    Third, while that is the only rule we have the staff STRONGLY suggests that everyone be mindful of the information they are sharing. This is an open board for the most part, meaning almost everything is visible by people who are not members. You do not know who is seeing what you post.

    Everyone has a different level of what they are comfortable sharing and we respect that. However, its always better to make a comment to the person sharing the information in case they are not aware of what PERSEC is then it is not to say anything.
