Securing the enterprise for mobility .: D97-4/1-2016E-PDF

"Today’s mobile devices are powerful computers that enable collaboration, and while they boost productivity and efficiency, they can increase the risk of a compromise of sensitive Government of Canada (GC) information. The security risks are numerous, and must be carefully considered, clearly understood, and security controls and safeguards put in place before mobile devices are allowed to access a departmental network. This publication provides an overview of Enterprise Mobility Security and lists some of the threats and risks that mobile devices pose to the GC corporate enterprise. This publication also outlines the potential mitigations and safeguards that a department or agency can put into place to counter these threats and risks. It is important to note that these lists are not comprehensive, and even if all possible mitigations have been properly implemented, a residual risk to the department’s network and information assets remains"--Introduction, p. 2.
