Miscellaneous Classified Material

the production of a classified document are handled in a
way that protects the material. Destroy such material
when you no longer need it. You dont need to mark this

TRANSMITTING CLASSIFIED MATERIAL
The rules for transmitting classified material can be
found in the Department of the Navy (DoN) Information
Security Program, SECNAVINST 5510.36. According
to SECNAVINST 5510.36, commanding officers must
make sure that only appropriately cleared personnel or
carriers transmit, transport, escort, or hand-carry
classified information. Unless a specific kind of
transmission or transportation is restricted, the means
selected should minimize the risk of a loss or
compromise while permitting the use of the most
cost-effective mode of conveyance.
Classified telephone conversations are permitted
only over secure communication circuits. These circuits
must be approved for the classification level of the
information being discussed. Every attempt must be
made to make sure that the classified information is not
compromised to unauthorized personnel.
COPYING CLASSIFIED MATERIAL
U.S. classified information can be reproduced only
to the extent required by operational necessity.
However, the agency that originates the information
may restrict reproduction of the material, or
reproduction of the information may be restricted
because of applicable statutes or directives.
