2020 DoD Operations Security Campaign

This Operations Campaign page will be inaccessible after 4 PM on Monday, November 30, 2020.

In accordance with the Secretary of Defense (SECDEF) memo, "Reinforcing Operations Security and the Importance of Preventing Unauthorized
Disclosures," dated July 20, 2020, the following four courses are mandatory to reinforce operations security and to prevent unauthorized disclosures. DoD personnel — military, civilian, and on-site contractors — are required to:

  • Step 1: View the SECDEF video.
  • Step 2: Complete OPSEC mandatory training courses, or other equivalent training authorized by your component.
  • Step 3: Save your course certificates after completion as there will be no record.

2020 DoD Operations Security Campaign Mandatory Courses

(Per the memo, components have the option to provide their own training.)

These courses do not provide a record of completion. You MUST print and/or save the certificate at the end of the course and examination.
