Mobile security - securing the Government of Canada: D97-2/1-2016E-PDF

"Mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets have spread rapidly across the Government of Canada (GC), and while they boost productivity and efficiency, they can increase the risk of a compromise of GC information and networks. The increase in risk is due to the fact that employees take the devices outside of the office and connect them to unknown and possibly untrusted networks. A compromise of GC information or networks can result in issues such as: downgrades in system performance, outages, lost productivity, costly recovery efforts, and damage to the GC reputation"--P. [1].
