The operating system is required to display the DoD approved system use notification message or banner before granting access to the system that provides privacy and security notices consistent with applicable federal laws, Executive Orders, directives, policies, regulations, standards, and guidance. This ensures the legal requirements for auditing and monitoring are met. System use notification messages can be displayed when individuals log in to the information system. The approved DoD text must be used as specified in the DoD CIO memorandum dated 9 May 2008 (see the check text for required wording).
