Combat Pilots Court-Martialed for Storing Secret Data on Phones

JewishPress Logo

A military tribune has court martialed two Air Force combat pilots who were caught storing sensitive information, including operational maps, on their smartphones.

The two pilots were sentenced to five days in the brig, and another 12 pilots were disciplined for similar offenses. Other pilots explained they store the information so that it could be readily accessible.

The problem is what happens if one of the pilots loses a smartphone with the maps?

That is exactly what happened. The phone was recovered, and that is when investigators discovered that the sensitive information had been stored on the mobile device.
