The Mobile Device Security Team at NIST’s National
Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) has published the
second draft of Special Publication 1800-22 Mobile Device Security: Bring
Your Own Device (BYOD) and is seeking the public’s comments on its
contents. Many organizations now support their employees’ use of personal
mobile devices to remotely perform work-related activities.
This increasingly common practice, known as BYOD, provides
employees with increased flexibility to telework and access organizational
information resources. Helping to ensure that an organization’s data is
protected when it is accessed from personal devices, while also protecting the
privacy needs of employees, poses unique challenges and threats.
The goal of this practice guide is to provide an example solution
that helps organizations use both a standards-based approach and commercially
available technologies to help meet their security and privacy needs when
permitting personally owned mobile devices to access enterprise resources.
Please review the second draft, which includes new updates to the
iOS BYOD implementation, and submit comments online on or before January 13th, 2023.
