敏感物品的定义是任何被认为是机密或任务必需的物品。它们的范围从防护服，地图，巡逻路线，点(夜视镜)或仅仅是你的武器。保护你的敏感物品的意义主要是维护opsec(操作安全)的责任，任务的成功和一个士兵的整体准备。如果一个物品丢失了，而敌人得到了那个物品，这可能会影响任务的执行，或者给他们提供我们士兵每天使用的物品的情报。使用习惯和实施敏感物品的安全将使士兵和他或她的团队有可能以最佳的性能操作。行动安全是拒绝向敌人提供有价值信息的过程。如果敌人得到了礼物，就可以用它来对付我们的部队。不保护敏感物品会增加被未授权人员截获的风险。每一名士兵都必须对所有敏感材料保持问责制和积极控制，以便使他们和任何与任务有关的人能够充分利用这些材料，同时仍然维持行动安全。由于业务规划使用的设备或支助特派团使用的设备的损失而造成敏感物品的损失，可能危及业务安全。 Also depending on the type of sensitive item that is being classified it could fall under a different level of security as it is deemed so by the U.S. Government. The levels included in the term classified are restricted (public disclosure could have undesirable effects or do some harm), confidential (unauthorized disclosure could damage national security example would be compromising information that indicates the strength of armed forces or disclosure of technical information about weapons), secret (unauthorized disclosure could seriously damage national security) and top secret (unauthorized disclosure could immensely put national security in immediate danger). Simply this means some things are more valuable than others, either because they cost more money or they hold a very importance in what they may do or what how they may help in the time of war on the battle field. In the military it is instilled in our heads that our weapon is the most valuable thing you will ever have. You train with it, you eat with it, you sleep with it, you use it to protect yourself and your battle buddies and you take care of it like it was your wife or child. In the end it becomes part of you and you cannot foresee yourself without it. Your weapon is considered a sensitive item because if it ends up in the enemies’ possession, it could possibly be used against you and your comrades. The United States has shed too many tears and money these past ten years that they do not need to shed any more due to negligence and not properly handling or maintaining positive control of sensitive items. Keeping track of where your weapon is or having it on you at all times will help in preventing from losing your weapon and or someone taking it from you. Now weapons are not the only things that are considered to be sensitive items. There are multiple things that are considered sensitive like your identification card. Your military identification card holds a ton of information not only about oneself but also about one self’s family. If your military identification card is found by an enemy it can cause a lot of harm to you. Luckily with the new identification card out, your social security number is no longer on the back of it, which is better because now they will not be able to use it to hack into your bank accounts or any other information. Also, if you lose your ID, you give the enemy ability to pose as you and get on to military installations causing the COB or base to be at risk for terrorist attacks. The importance of securing all sensitive equipment and items cannot be stressed enough. The reason is...
