    World War II Slogan is Crucial to Preventing Unauthorized Disclosure in 2024 - DITMAC Team Working to Reduce Unauthorized Disclosures, Training DOD Workforce

    QUANTICO, Va. – DOD Unauthorized Disclosure Program Management Office (UDPMO) Chief Andy Rovnak recounted the World War II “loose lips sink ships” campaign focused on preventing inadvertent disclosure of important information to the enemy.

    “It’s just as true and crucial today as it was throughout World War II,” said Rovnak, who leads the UDPMO team – one of several DCSA counter insider threat teams comprising the DOD Insider Threat Management and Analysis Center (DITMAC) – in their efforts to help prevent unauthorized disclosure or leaks of non-public information, crucial to maintaining the nation’s security, personnel safety and public trust.

    “Deterring, detecting and mitigating unauthorized disclosure is everyone’s responsibility – it’s our military, government and civic duty,” he said in a recent interview. “We've got to be very careful in what we say and do. We're not just talking on the phone – we’re on cyber while people are trying to compromise the integrity of our networks and our cyber capability. It's where we are right now in the state of the world, and we must avoid any release of classified or secure information which could damage our national security.”
