Friday, April 10, 2020 | Comments

A new National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) report offers recommendations for deployment, use and disposal of mobile devices throughout the mobile-device lifecycle. The scope of “Guidelines for Managing the Security of Mobile Devices in the Enterprise” includes mobile devices, centralized device management and endpoint protection technologies while including both organization-provided and personally owned deployment scenarios.

The recommendations said:
• Organizations should conduct a threat analysis for mobile devices and any information systems accessed from mobile devices.
• Organizations should employ enterprise mobility management, mobile threat defense and other applicable enterprise mobile security technologies.
• Organizations should leverage the Enterprise Mobile Device Deployment Lifecycle where applicable.
• Organizations should implement and test a pilot of their mobile device solution before putting the solution into production.
• Organizations should fully secure each organization-issued mobile device before allowing a user to access the organization’s systems or information.
• Organizations should keep mobile operating systems and apps updated.
• Organizations should regularly maintain mobile device security.

The full report is here. A public comment period runs through June 26.
