Techniques Addressed by Mitigation

NameUse
Location IdentificationProtect information that may disclose locations of key physical assets.
Theft of Operational InformationExample mitigations could include minimizing its distribution/storage or obfuscating the information (e.g., facility coverterms, codenames). In many cases this information may be necessary to support critical engineering, maintenance, or operational functions, therefore, it may not be feasible to implement.
