New Policy Addresses Mobile Device Use in Secure DoD Spaces

The Committee on National Security Systems has implemented a new policy that authorizes officials in charge of secure Defense Department areas to regulate the use of mobile devices in such spaces, Federal News Radio reported Thursday.

The policy released Nov. 20 requires employees, contractors, agents and visitors of facilities that handle top secret information and below to obtain the approval of officials in charge before they bring mobile devices to secure spaces.

Under the policy, officers in charge would need to justify the approval of mobile devices based on mission requirements.

DoD would accept the use of mobile platforms in secure areas for command and control, counterintelligence, testing, training, communication and research and development activities.

The policy also directs officials to identify known and potential risks associated with the use of mobile devices in an area and its surrounding spaces, the report noted.
