Operation Security or OPSEC is the process of identifying critical information and subsequently analyzing friendly actions attendant to military operations and other activities to:
- Identify those actions that can be observed by adversary intelligence systems
- Determine indicators that hostile intelligence systems might obtain that could be interpreted or pieced together to derive critical information in time to be useful to adversaries
- Select and execute measures that eliminate or reduce to an acceptable level the vulnerabilities of friendly actions to adversary exploitation
Operations security protects critical information from adversary observation and collection in ways that traditional security program cannot.
