Navy Intel Oversight, Protecting Unclassified Info

03.09.10 | 1 min read | Text by Steven Aftergood

The U.S. Navy has released some new guidance pertaining to intelligence programs, including the following items (both pdf).

“Oversight of the Department of the Navy Military Intelligence Program,” SECNAV Instruction 5000.38A, February 5, 2010.

“Required Operational Capabilities and Projected Operational Environment for Navy Expeditionary Intelligence Command Forces,” OPNAV Instruction 3501.382, March 1, 2010.

The Department of Defense has invited comment on a proposal to modify and enhance controls on unclassified DoD information held in industry in order to protect such information from unauthorized access and disclosure.  The proposed changes may be altered at a later date, the DoD notice states, in response to ongoing development of a government-wide policy on “controlled unclassified information.”  See the March 3 DoD Federal Register notice here.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration issued its own proposed rule on the handling of “restricted information” in a March 4 Federal Register notice.
