SUBJ/OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO PROTECT INFORMATION//

RMKS/1.  As Department of the Navy personnel, we are bound by the oath we 
took to protect classified and sensitive information.  That oath is a solemn 
and legally enforceable obligation to support and defend our Constitution, 
maintain the faith and confidence of our leadership, and carry out our orders 
to safeguard our Nation, our Navy, and each other.

2.  In order to carry out these responsibilities, we are often granted access 
to some of the most sensitive and closely-held information in our government.  
It is a violation of our oath to reveal, in any fashion, nonpublic Department 
of the Navy information, classified or unclassified, to anyone without both 
the required security clearance and the specific need to know in the 
performance of their duties.  Doing so places our service men and women at 
risk, endangers our intelligence operations, and undermines our technological 
and warfighting advantages over our foes.

3.  We each have a special responsibility protect our secrets and privileged 
internal communications.  The unauthorized disclosure or intentional release 
of non-public information, classified or unclassified, including For Official 
Use Only (FOUO) and business -sensitive information, is serious and 
inexcusable.

4.  We must be vigilant in executing our responsibility to prevent disclosure 
of any information that isnt authorized for release outside of the 
Department.  All hands must be alert to prevent unauthorized disclosure of 
non-public information for any reason, whether by implied acknowledgement or 
intentional release.  Misconduct cannot be tolerated, and suspected or 
confirmed disclosure must be reported at once.

5.  As a Department, we have increasingly complex security challenges which 
call for increased vigilance in protecting our secrets.  We must always be 
mindful of the obligations we have to each other and to the Nation we have 
sworn to protect.

6.  Released by the Honorable Richard V. Spencer, Secretary of the Navy.//
