This Naval message provides details on the continued efforts of the Department of the Navy to implement guidance that better safeguards personally identifiable information by reducing or eliminating the collection, use, display and maintenance of the Social Security number (SSN). The DON has implemented phases one and two of the SSN reduction plan and is now implementing phase three. This DON-wide effort requires the attention and cooperation of senior leadership.
