According to Wikipedia, capturing Bin Laden was step 7 on the execution checklist - what were the steps before? And were there any afterwards?

The words of the commander on the ground were, "For God and country, Geronimo, Geronimo, Geronimo."[283] Officials subsequently explained that each step of the mission was labelled alphabetically in an "Execution Checklist", which is used to ensure all participants in a large operation are kept synchronized with a minimum of radio traffic. "Geronimo" indicated the raiders had reached step "G", the capture or killing of bin Laden. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_of_Osama_bin_Laden

I assume, securing the data would be one, but that's just a speculation.
