Using your mobile device securely: D97-1/1-2016E-PDF

"As an employee of the Government of Canada (GC) your mobile device provides a convenient and flexible way to work anywhere or at anytime. While mobile devices play a vital role in the day-to-day operations of GC departments and agencies, their use also poses a threat to GC information and networks. Mobile devices are attractive targets that provide unique opportunities for threat actors intent on gathering information because they can contain vast amounts of sensitive government and personal information. A compromised device has the potential to allow unauthorized access to your departmental network, placing not only your own information at risk, but also that of the department. It is important for all GC employees to remember that Canada is an attractive target for cyber-threat actors due to its wealth, resources, and diplomatic relationships"-- P. [1].
