Potential Consequences for Failing to Safeguard PII
Published, July 22, 2008
The DON Table of Potential Consequences and Penalties for the Mishandling/Improper Safeguarding of PII was developed with legal assistance from the Department of the Navy’s Office of Civilian Human Resources and its Workforce Relations and Compensation Division, the Office of the Judge Advocate General, and the Office of the DON CIO.
The table represents existing rules and penalties that leadership could apply if PII is mishandled. In cases in which policy was not followed, appropriate disciplinary action should be taken, weighing mitigating circumstances, severity of the PII loss or compromise, and other extenuating factors.
