New Unauthorized Disclosure Case Study Job Aid

Center for Development of Security Excellence (CDSE) is pleased to announce the release of the first of a new series of Unauthorized Disclosure (UD) case study job aids. These case studies are designed to build UD awareness by chronicling real-world UD incidents caused by current and/or former Department of Defense (DoD) personnel, determining the motivation for their action(s), and highlighting the damage to national security caused by the UD incident. While the case studies presented may not garner national or international media attention, they underscore the fact UD occurs away from the public spotlight.

The case studies also remind DoD personnel to follow the DoD prepublication review process, as administered by the Defense Office of Security and Prepublication Review (DOPSR) prior to publically releasing DoD information to prevent UD incidents.

The case studies are ideal for easy inclusion into an organization's security education, training, and awareness program. Access the job aid PDF icon.
