A Message to the DON Community from Christopher P. Cleary, DON Chief Information Security Officer

by Christopher P. Cleary - July 31, 2020

Now more than ever, during this time of mass telework, we need to be vigilant about protecting our data. Like sentries standing guard to prevent unauthorized access or watching for fires, everyone in the Department of the Navy enterprise must become a 'Cyber Sentry' and be 'Cyber Ready.' Fundamental to this is being on guard against any phishing attempts. The more advanced we become as an information-based organization, the more our adversaries will seek to attack and exploit us in this domain. We will not be able to stop them unless everyone does their part to protect the advantages digital information provides, and limit the vulnerabilities it creates.
