The Naval OPSEC Support Team (NOST)
The Naval OPSEC Support Team was established in 2005 as the Navy’s OPSEC support capability, tasked with providing program development, planning, training, assessments and surveys, and operational support throughout the service. The team accomplishes its mission through certification training and supporting U.S Naval and Joint Forces worldwide via the OPSEC program manager course, a one-stop-shop website, and reach-back support email addresses at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
The Navy OPSEC Course certifies OPSEC officers and program managers. Courses are taught by certified instructors from Norfolk, Virginia and San Diego, California, and hosted world-wide in several fleet-concentrated areas.
Day 1: includes an introduction to OPSEC, theory and overview, identification of threat and critical information, analyzing vulnerabilities, assessing risk and applying countermeasures.
Day 2: includes operational exercises, standing up a program, conducting assessments, information operations integration, and OPSEC within social media.
