CFPAS Download
« on: November 27, 2013, 19:07:29 »
Hey, I recently reformatted my computer and forgot to backup my copy of CFPAS. I was wondering if anyone has a copy that they could email to me or if someone could PM a password so I may download it from the website.

Thanks!

Eye In The Sky, don't ever think about transferring over to the Reserves for a Class B contract then.  Working while on leave, is an occupational hazard.     ;)

Meh, considering this is for my troops and in this particular case I am the reason the work has to be done I don't mind.  There are hills I die on; this isn't one of them.

I used to do the Cl B (A) gig, and didn't go to work when I was on leave then either.  My leave is my leave.   :nod:

Always been curious how this works. Is the protected B info left off till back at the office ? And is it brought back to work with a USB stick and then scrubbed .. or emailed through the firewall?

Just wondering why there is a password on this program. It is not like you can do anything with the program except write PERs/PDRs, there is nothing sensitive on it. I guess you can make the claim that if someone finds a bunch of PER files they could read them at home, but it think that it is a stretch. Seems like judging by the number of people asking for passwords that it is just hindering the intended users.

You should be issued a protected B usb drive and just scrub it when you go into the office. There should be scrubbers there, I usually just to the LCIS shop right next to mine as they always had a scubber handy.

I don't think it's kosher to have/process Protected B information on your personnal computer... 

Also, once a media is labelled a certain protection/classification level, you can't downgrade it without doing some significant work to it.  You can't plug Protected B media into your personnal computer.

SSM is right.

I don't get why everyone is desperate for CFPAS at home. Write what dots you have, take them home. Type yourself an email with a narrative in it, and take 5 minutes copy/pasting it into the PER format at work, and you're done. Worked for me for 7 years.

Put your narratives and scores in MS Word. Cut and paste the narratives and copy the dots. Way easier to modify and correct, in MS Word, also.

Reservists don't have the luxury of doing it at work. Lack of computers and time preclude it. The only way to complete them is at home. That's why they made the CFPAS program downloadable to your home PC.

I print out the dots at work and write the narritive at home in an email. Hit that little airplane up in the corner and it waiting for my the next morning! I redact as I go (MCpl Xxxxxxx) and I do this with the right amount of letters. Not so necessary now, but when we were filling the whole page, if I typed Cpl X at home 3 times and then copied and pasted at work - Cpl X became Cpl Laughtenschlager. Bring on the yellow!

Plus I have a Mac. There is no CFPAS option for us Mac users!

I am fairly certain you cannot process Protected B information on personnal computer.  Using Word and not using identifiable information is probably the best way to go. Being a reservist doesn't absolve someone from adhering to security directives/instuctions.

There is actually specific instructions that allow you to use CFPAS at home. You can fill out the dots and complete the narrative. As long as you don't fill out any of the tombstone data, nor use the member's name in the narrative, then the document is not PROB. You can then email it back to your work computer, finish processing it, and save it PROB to a stick.

Key words are the document is Protected B "when completed". Not complete without tombstone.
