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 opsec@navy.mil and opsec@navy.smil.mil.

OPSEC COURSE
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. 

To register for a course on the East Coast, Europe or in Middle East, please email opsec@navy.mil; to register for a course on the West Coast, Hawaii or in the Far East, please email IWTG_SDNI_QUOTAS@navy.mil. Provide full name, command and DoDID number when registering; a welcome letter will be included in the response. 

To request an unscheduled or ad hoc course, please email opsec@navy.mil with proposed dates, location, justification and estimated cost for the traveler.
