The stereotypical image of a federal employee carrying two phones --- usually a BlackBerry cozied up next to an iPhone or Android device --- is familiar for a reason. Many agencies have long been unwilling or unable to allow of cial work on personal devices, so employees carry both. As the government continues to embrace mobility, how- ever, the workforce is already starting to demand more. First, the bring-your-own-device, or BYOD, movement sup- ported the notion that workers should be able to use their personal devices for work. Now bring your own application, or BYOA, is making its way into the federal government. Whether they use a personal or a government-issued device, people are starting to think about how the appli- cations they rely on to be productive in their everyday lives could be applied to their jobs. Simply put, BYOA means allowing employees to decide which mobile applications they use to enhance their work. Fueling a mobile revolution Chris Roberts, vice president of the worldwide public sector at Good Technology, said government mobility is evolving. "The focus used to be all about mobile device management; now people really want to execute on the application side of mobility," he said. "From a government point of view, the idea is to save money and create ef ciencies, moving beyond just email on mobile devices and eventually being able to execute all functions of your job from a mobile device." In May 2013, the CIO Council released its report on the Digital Government Strategy s Milestone 5.4, which deals with the adoption of commercial mobile applications by federal agencies. The report s authors noted the lack of a standardized approach to reviewing and approving such applications and recommended the creation of a catalog that would highlight characteristics of mobile applications that have particular relevance to government. Beyond BYOD: Who oversees the apps? BY COLBY HOCHMUTH Of cial "bring your own app" policies are still few and far between, but agencies are adapting to their employees demands 24 August 30, 2014 FCW.COM ExecTe c h To reduce risks, manage the user Regardless of what security measures agencies place on mobile devices, users who aren't edu- cated and trained to safely use those devices can render security efforts moot. So although contain- erization can help agencies ensure that applica- tions holding government data stay secure, many organizations are focusing on managing user behavior as much as devices. One of the rst steps is educating employees about mobile devices and teaching them to be aware of basic security measures for their devices and applications. Rick Holgate, CIO at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, said agencies must come up with a strategy for how they are going to authorize and manage mobile applications. They need to decide whether to allow users to pick which applications are loaded on their devices and then monitor them, or actively control which applications get installed. Meanwhile, Scott Armstrong, chief strategy of cer at mobile solutions provider INADEV, said agency leaders must promote an environment of open communication when it comes to dealing with issues associated with mobile devices so that employees feel comfortable reporting security risks. --- Colby Hochmuth
