Employees' Guide to Security Responsibilities

Help for First-Time Users

Here is the scoop. I am the former Security Manager for a CACOM. During my years as the CACOM Security Manager, I noticed that sometimes our Soldiers have questions, and when they ask someone, they get quoted some AR - Bla Bla Bla... At that point 87% lose interest. The problem with that is, when it comes down to SECURITY, we can't afford to lose interest...

Hence the birth of the


The purpose of this guide is to answer all your simple questions without quoting an outdated and complicated Army Regulation (AR), which would most likely lead to another AR, then back to the original AR in a different section that will only confuse you.

The bottom line is this. When it comes down to SECURITY, we cannot be confused. We must all be on the same page, willing to ask questions, and know exactly where to go to get the answers. Your first course of action is to ask your Security Manager (SM).

I would give a phone # here but this is an UNCLASSIFIED site!!

Your SM will find the Reg (If they do not know it) and get you an answer. If you DO NOT want to call them (which is a HUGE MISTAKE), here is a wonderful Guide I developed to help educate us all.
This is what SETA (Security, Education, Training and Awareness) is all about!!!

The SETA4life Security Guide provides convenient access to a wide range of security, counterintelligence, technical vulnerability, and employee assistance information. It is all quickly accessible by clicking with the left mouse button on the appropriate underlined text on the Home page. To sample the information available in this program, check out the Know-It-All's Security Quiz.

You may use this Guide like reference manual, looking up specific subjects of interest. Or you may read through parts of it like a book to increase your overall understanding of security and counterintelligence issues. If you are reading large sections of the program, you may find it easier to print out these sections and read the hard copy.

For help in learning how to use this program, see the relevant section below.


Computer Requirements and Settings

This program can be viewed with any browser equivalent to Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape versions 3.0 or better.

Screen Size: The only circumstance when screen size might be a problem is if you are viewing this program within another program that has a contents or navigation frame on the left side of the screen. The border that separates that frame from this program may be adjustable. Click on the border line. If arrows appear, you may drag the border to the left to allow more space for this program.

Browser Adjustments: You can change the size of type with adjustments available in the View menu of your browser. The size of type you see on the screen also depends on the screen resolution setting in your computer's control panel. To change that, see your system administrator. 

Navigational Tools

Navigation: Links on the home page lead to all major modules of this program. Click through the appropriate module to reach the desired topic. Alternatively, click on the Table of Contents that lists and has links to all the substantive files in this program.

Navigational Buttons: Navigational buttons for returning to Home or moving directly to a different major module are located at the bottom of each page. A single click with the left mouse button on the appropriate navigational button takes the user to the specified location. To move quickly to the navigation buttons at the bottom of the page, press and hold the Page Down key on the keyboard.  This is usually faster than using the scroll bar.

Return to Previous Page: A click on the Back button in the browser toolbar takes you back to the previously viewed location. Alternatively, a single click with the right mouse button brings up a dialog box with a choice of moving back or forward.

Copy and Paste

To select and copy text, hold down the left mouse button and drag the cursor across the desired text. Then click on copy in the browser Edit menu. The text may then be pasted into any word processing program.


There is no way to print the entire program at once. Each topic (file) must be printed individually. To check what will appear in a printout use the scroll bar. Any part of the document that you can scroll to will be included in the printout.

Bookmarks or Favorites

You may use your browser's Bookmark or Favorites function to create a shortcut for returning to a major topic area that you refer to frequently.
