Securing classified information within government work spaces

Back before I was investigating classified proprietary materials theft, I was at one specific facility where the emphasis was on not leaving classified materials laying around work stations. The employee or contractor may think their project is safe just lying on a desk or up on the computer screen while they head to the restroom but statistics show many secrets have been stolen from materials left right out in the open.

The secure locations will host training classes, send out memos but they also used something as basic as cartoonish signs placed on desks, in cubicles and on walls throughout the facility like these signs I collected at one of my duty stations.

These may seem goofy to use these types of displays in protecting America’s secrets but they worked.
