DoD Identity Awareness, Protection, and Management Guide

Eighth Edition, March 2018

The guide is divided into two-page chapters detailing key privacy considerations on the most popular online services, mobile apps, and consumer devices available in the market today. Each chapter provides you with tools, recommendations, and step-by-step guides to implement settings that maximize your security. The guide is updated twice a year, in March and September. While some of the chapters in the IAPM Guide deal with technical issues, they do not require a technical background to follow.
