AMPN/REF A IS ALCOM 025/09 DIRECTING A NETWORK SECURITY TRAINING AND
AWARENESS DAY.// 
RMKS/1. RECENT NETWORK SECURITY BREACHES ARE INDICATORS THAT THROUGHOUT 
THE NAVY WE ARE NOT FULLY AND SATISFACTORILY COMPLYING WITH BASIC 
POLICY DESIGNED TO SECURE OUR NETWORKS.
2. PER REF A, COMMANDER, NAVAL NETWORK WARFARE COMMAND (NNWC) HAS 
DIRECTED ALL NAVAL ACTIVITIES TO CONDUCT A NETWORK SECURITY TRAINING 
AND AWARENESS DAY NO LATER THAN 28 FEBRUARY 2009. THERE ARE NO 
EXCEPTIONS TO THIS REQUIREMENT.
3. UNITED STATES STRATEGIC COMMAND, JOINT TASK FORCE-GLOBAL NETWORK
OPERATIONS, NNWC AND NAVY CYBER DEFENSE OPERATING COMMAND ARE ACTIVELY
INVOLVED IN PROTECTING OUR NETWORKS AND ISSUE NEW GUIDANCE ON A REGULAR
BASIS TO COUNTER KNOWN AND EMERGING NETWORK SECURITY THREATS. LOG ONTO
WWW.NCDOC.NAVY.SMIL.MIL AND WWW.JTFGNO.SMIL.MIL ROUTINELY TO ENSURE 
LOCAL PRACTICES ARE CURRENT.  
4. FULL COMPLIANCE WITH EXISTING SECURITY POLICIES AND STRICT ADHERENCE 
BY ALL HANDS, EVERY DAY, IS REQUIRED TO SUSTAIN OUR OPERATIONAL 
READINESS AND WARFIGHTING CAPABILITIES. WE NEED TO KNOW WHAT IS 
REQUIRED TO ENSURE OUR NETWORK SECURITY, WE NEED TO FOLLOW THE 
PROCEDURES THAT OUR SECURITY POLICIES REQUIRE, AND WE NEED TO ENSURE 
THAT LEADERS AT EVERY LEVEL UNDERSTAND THEIR ACCOUNTABILITY FOR 
MAINTAINING THE SECURITY OF OUR NETWORKS.
5. BOTTOM LINE -
1) KNOW AND UNDERSTAND WHAT IS REQUIRED TO MAINTAIN NETWORK SECURITY,
2) FOLLOW APPROVED NETWORK OPERATIONAL PROCEDURES, AND
3) ENFORCE OUR NETWORK SECURITY STANDARDS.
