DON Privacy Program
SECNAVINST 5211.5E - Publish Date: 12/28/05
SECNAVINST 5211.5E implements the Privacy Act of 1974 per the Department of Defense Privacy Program Directive and Regulation ensuring that all DON military members and civilian/contractor employees are made fully aware of their rights and responsibilities with regards to privacy. The program attempts to balance the government’s need to maintain information with the obligation to protect individuals against unwarranted invasions of their privacy stemming from the DON’s collection, maintenance, use and disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information (PII). The program requires that privacy management practices and procedures be employed to evaluate privacy risks in publicly accessible DON web sites and unclassified non-national security information systems.
