The Department of Homeland Security is looking to mobile devices as the agency’s primary means of communication, Federal Times reported Monday.
Andy Medici writes the DHS is also developing security and privacy infrastructures for mobile devices and products.
Keith Trippie, executive director for DHS’ enterprise system development office, told a GovDelivery crowd in Washington the agency wants to help stakeholders communicate and deliver services to DHS customers and components.
“We want to skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it is,” Trippie said, according to the report.
DHS also intends to help developers build mobile applications and programs through a code “car wash,” he added.
