Abstract:

This thesis investigates the problem of non-tactical ADP system security requirements and security organizations on small surface vessels of the US Navy. It presents an overview of ADP security at the levels of the Federal government, Department of Defense, and Department of the Navy. The author researches the questions of whether there is a need for an abbreviated security manual for non-tactical ADP systems on small surface ships, the level of detail required for such a manual, and the type of security organization which might be required on a small surface ship. Conclusions are drawn which present the need for a security manual which pertains to specific ship types and classes, a possible outline for this security manual, and a possible shipboard security organization which is simple and effective. Keywords Data processing security and SNAP 2Shipboard Nontactical ADP Program 2.
