GameChanger Game ChanGinG TeChnoloGy To meeT aGenCy missions SponSored report Mobility the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) both have multiple efforts underway to strengthen mobile security. Among other issues, DHS is focused on mobile application security. As part of a five-year cybersecurity broad agency announcement, DHS is looking for industry experts to develop new tools to assist mobile app developers, analysts and security or network operators. One area of interest is continuous validation and threat protection for mobile applications. “This entails developing the capability to anticipate and, if needed, react to future threats and vulnerabilities while continuously monitoring a mobile device’s security posture,” the BAA states. Another focus area is integrating security throughout the mobile application lifecycle, which includes developing a security framework for mobile application development. Separately, DHS is working with Northrop Grumman on a biometric solution intended to eliminate the need for passwords on mobile devices. The project will combine behavioral sensing and modeling techniques to authenticate user identities. Meanwhile, NIST’s National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence is working on standards designed to streamline mobile authentication for first responders. This effort is aimed at maintaining secure access to critical resources without obstructing information-sharing among the various first responders on a scene. Many public safety agencies are investing in multi-factor authentication systems as a way to control access to sensitive information. However, this can be a problem if first-responders need to access multiple systems while on the scene, with each requiring multi- factor authentication. “When responding to an emergency, public safety personnel require on- demand access to data,” the NIST project description states. “The ability to quickly and securely authenticate in order to access public safety data is critical to ensuring that first responders can deliver proper care and support during an emergency.” The goal is to make it possible for all applications in a given environment to recognize an identity accepted by one of them, providing single sign-on functionality. DHS, NIST Lead Way on Mobile Security shutterstock.com size Up Mobility Risks People understand the security risks that come with mobility, according to a recent study conducted by the Ponemon institute. The survey, which covered nearly 600 iT and security executives in the private and public sectors, found mobile users understand the risks and believe the risks are growing. here are some key data points: 83% say mobile devices are susceptible to hacking 70% believe poor mobile security has likely resulted in a data breach 33% say their organization is “vigilant” in protecting sensitive data from unauthorized access 30% say their organization specifies what data can be stored on a personal device Source: Ponemon Institute
