Security Awareness Week – test your security knowledge

The contest runs the duration of Security Awareness Week, from Feb. 8 to 12

In support of Security Awareness Week, Robert Whitwall, N61-2 Headquarters Security Officer, has set up a fake single person cubicle on the third floor of D100 with an array of physical and IT security infractions for D100 personnel and visitors to discover.

Physical security infractions can include leaving protected documents on an unattended desk, or not properly securing sensitive documents and passwords. IT security infractions include using unauthorized drives in workplace computers and leaving computers logged on while unattended.

“Security is everybody’s business, not just people in the security world,” says Whitwall. “We should all be aware of our surroundings and if we see something that is out of place or looks wrong, it should be mentioned. The more people are aware of their security environments, the safer our work environments will be.”

Whoever spots the highest number of infractions will receive a prize.  

The contest runs the duration of Security Awareness Week, from Feb. 8 to 12. Anyone interested in participating can stop by the cubicle and fill out a form provided citing the infractions they notice.

On the Naden side, Base Administration Branch personnel can review a mock workstation in N30 Base Orderly Room, and list all security infractions. There is also a security quiz located in the lobbies of the Wardroom, Nelles, and the Naden gym.


Please note restricted areas require you to ensure all personnel are escorted accordingly.  If successful in any of the above exercises, you could be the winner of some cool prizes.
