DoD Communications Systems Breach in 9/11 Trials

---------- Forwarded message ---------- 

From: Ruiz, Walter B, CDR OSD OMC Defense <Walter.Ruiz@osd.mil> Date: Thu, Apr 11, 2013 at 9:07 AM Subject: CDC Orders Defense to Stop Using Communications Systems. To: "Ruiz, Walter B, CDR OSD OMC Defense" <Walter.Ruiz@osd.mil> 

 Yesterday the CDC, Colonel Mayberry issued an office wide order to seize and desist from using our e-mail communications to transmit any matters that are confidential or privileged. All OCDC Personnel including all civilian counsel been directed not to save any files that contain privileged materials onto our personal or common drives. 

 This measure was taken as the CDC has determined that the integrity of these systems is not sufficient to ensure that we safeguard confidential and privileged materials, as it is our ethical duty to do. This follows on the heels of the seizure of over 500,000 e-mail containing attorney-client privileged communications as well as the loss of significant amount of defense work-product contained in shared folders.
