Thank You For Attending

Across the federal government, mobility has become a way of life, as the line between office employees and mobile employees is blurring and might soon disappear altogether. Federal employees expect to have access to the information they need no matter where they are what device they are using. Such capabilities are essential to improving the efficiency of the workforce and the quality of services that they provide.

However, to make this mobile workforce a reality, agencies need to think about mobility in different terms. Rather than thinking in terms of mobile solutions, they need to move toward the development of a mobile ecosystem—a comprehensive strategy for mobile devices, apps, workforce management, and, of course, cybersecurity—that is fully integrated into an agency’s broader IT strategy.

Right now, many agencies are playing catch-up, especially when it comes to security. The security controls needed to secure the mobile ecosystem “have not kept pace with the security risks that mobile devices can pose, not only in Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) scenarios, but also in corporately owned and personally enabled (COPE) mobile device deployments, where mobile devices are adopted on an ad hoc basis,” states the NIST Cybersecurity Practice Guide.

This event provided federal IT leaders with insights into the foundations of the mobile ecosystem: Productivity tools, apps, devices, management strategies, and defense-in-depth cybersecurity.
