One of the DoDEA’s primary goals is to keep ensure a safe and secure environment that is conducive to learning and student achievement. We continually work with local military and civilian health, safety, and emergency personnel leaders to ensure coordinated responses to potential threats. We also drill for emergency situations and then review and revise plans as needed.
Operations Security, or OPSEC, is a security discipline designed to deny adversaries the ability to collect, analyze, and exploit information that might provide an advantage against the United States by preventing inadvertent compromise of critical information through a process of continual assessment that identifies and analyzes critical information, vulnerabilities, risk, and external threats.
OPSEC challenges us to look at ourselves through the eyes of an adversary.
An adversary can be an individual, a group, a country, or an organization who want to harm people, resources, or disrupt/thwart a mission.
