More practical security tips from Fort Meade

in history •  3 months ago

Fort George G. Meade is the headquarters of the National Security Agency. In the 1950s and 1960s, the NSA created posters for internal use to promote security awareness. Now everybody can take a look at them thanks to a FOIA request by the Government Attic website. Here's a second batch of posters giving security tips that are still useful today. Two of these posters show funny vehicles and two have trippy designs. I guess these are from the 1960s.

Is it me, or does the last poster have kinky overtones?
