Discussion

Sensitive DoD data could be stored in memory on a DoD operated mobile operating system (OS) based CMD and the data could be compromised if required actions are not followed when a CMD is lost or stolen. Without procedures for lost or stolen mobile operating system (OS) based CMD devices, it is more likely that an adversary could obtain the device and use it to access DoD networks or otherwise compromise DoD IA.

Detailed Policy Requirements: The site (location where CMDs are issued and managed and the site where the mobile operating system (OS) based CMD management server is located) must publish procedures to follow if a CMD has been lost or stolen. The procedures should include (as appropriate): - Mobile device user notifies ISSO, SM, and other site personnel, as required by the site’s Incident Response Plan, within the timeframe required by the site’s Incident Response Plan. - The ISSO notifies the mobile device management server system administrator and other site personnel, as required by the site’s Incident Response Plan, within the timeframe required by the site’s Incident Response Plan. The site mobile device management server administrator sends a wipe command to the CMD and then disables the user account on the management server or removes the CMD from the user account. - The site will contact the carrier to have the device deactivated on the carrier’s network. Check procedures: Interview the ISSO. Review the site’s Incident Response Plan or other policies to determine if the site has a written plan of action. If the site does not have a written plan of action following a lost or stolen CMD, this is a finding.
