GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. The spate of unauthorized disclosures of Classified Military Information (CMI) and Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) has significantly weakened our governments ability to conduct business and protect the nation. The reasons and excuses for these occurrences are many and varied. They are also immaterial since it is illegal, immoral, and a violation of the oath we have taken to protect classified information as well as the oath we take to protect the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
2. Accordingly, the Secretary of Defense has directed that every DOD department and agency dedicate one hour, during the month of October, to engage their organization in discussion of the importance of protecting this information from unauthorized disclosure. Ref A pertains. This MARADMIN implements that direction.
2.A. All commands in the Marine Corps will conduct a one hour training session no later than the end of October 2017 on the topic of unauthorized disclosure. The following tools are available to assist in developing this training.
2.A.1 Video available for use: https:(slash)(slash)www.c-span.org/video/?432127-1/attorney-general-says-culture-leaking-must-stop&live
2.A.2 Center for Development of Security Excellence tool kit for training is available on its website (information security section): https:(slash)(slash)securityawareness.usalearning.gov/
3. As a reminder, Refs B, C, and D require commands to develop policies to ensure all information that will be released to the public undergo a security review prior to release. This includes speeches, information released by Family Readiness Officers, and information placed on public facing webpages. The next revision of Ref E will incorporate this requirement.
4. Point of contact is Mrs. Leslie Bethune at firstname.lastname@example.org or 703-614-9464.
5. Release authorized by Mr. James M. Cain, Deputy Director, Plans, Policies, and Operations (Security).//
