Sailors and Navy civilians need to take precautionary measures to maintain a heightened cyber security posture. Here are several tips: (1) ensure that all your annual cyber security training is up to date; (2) stop and think before you open emails or click on hyperlinks. Verify the authenticity of the source; (3) log off your workstation at night, reboot on a weekly basis to ensure all security patches can be properly applied; (4) maintain awareness of your command's cyber security policies; and (5) open a dialogue with your Information Systems Security Manager (ISSM) and, when in doubt, ask questions. Sailors and civilians can voluntarily participate in any additional training offered through FedVTE, Navy Knowledge Online (NKO), or the Information Assurance Support Environment (IASE).
