Key takeaways

  • A key federal agency, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, has just issued new and quite specific draft guidance for improving data security with respect to mobile devices that employees use to connect to their employers’ networks.
  • Because the new guidance can be expected to have significant impact on both technical and legal standards, companies may wish to begin factoring the draft guidance into their cybersecurity assessments now.   
  • This guidance is currently in draft form and open for public comment until January 8, 2016.
