OPSEC is a systematic, proven process to identify, control and protect generally sensitive but unclassified information about a mission, operation or activity, and, thus, denying or mitigating an adversary's ability to compromise or interrupt that mission, operation or activity. If an adversary has knowledge regarding your capabilities, interests, intentions, plans, or procedures, then he has an opportunity to exploit your vulnerabilities.
The OPSEC process is designed to determine how adversaries could collect information regarding a specific operation, activity, or project so that countermeasures can be implemented to prevent exploitation of associated critical information.
