Using your mobile device securely (ITSAP.00.001)

Using your mobile device securely (ITSAP.00.001) "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 organizations and agencies, their use can also pose a threat to 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 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 organization. It is important for all employees to remember that Canada is an attractive target for cyber-threat actors due to its wealth, resources, and diplomatic relationships." 2022-11-02 Communications Security Establishment Canada open-ouvert@tbs-sct.gc.ca Information and CommunicationsScience and TechnologyCyber DefenceIdentity and PasswordsMobilityWirelessTravelVoice and Telephony HTML ENHTML https://cyber.gc.ca/en/guidance/using-your-mobile-device-securely-itsap00001 HTML FRHTML https://cyber.gc.ca/fr/orientation/utiliser-son-dispositif-mobile-en-toute-securite-itsap00001
