Training Course: Omitron Security Solutions, COMSEC Awareness Training

Our coverage of communications security (COMSEC) in this course is mainly concerned with the means of communication in which transmitting and receiving information require wire or radiant energy. It should be clear that our National Security is dependent on the security on the systems providing these electronic transfers. Ideally, only the intended or authorized parties receive these transmissions in a usable format, and any unintended or unauthorized receipt of the transmissions is unusable by the recipient. In the following paragraphs we discuss the COMSEC elements used in that protection and the COMSEC security incidents that could jeopardize such protection.
