FMG Announces Efforts to Bolster Federal Mobile Security
Federal Mobility Group

The Federal Mobility Group (FMG) has launched efforts to help agencies protect mobile devices operating in environments that lack security. 

FMG evaluated and improved data reporting aspects of the Federal Information Security Management Act, published guidance for teleworking, assessed threat defense ecosystems and educated agencies on credential management, the Chief Information Officer Council said Wednesday.

These efforts aim to help government agencies understand mobile security threats, implement credential management techniques and identify device configuration robustness.

The group also advises agencies to analyze threats that may affect mobile devices and backend systems, leverage enterprise mobile security tools, trial then implement a mobile device management system and update mobile security and operating systems frequently.

These efforts support and align with the nearly concluded National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. FMG works to tackle issues that challenge mobile device security, 5G implementation and other related matters.
