Mobile Device Best Practices When Traveling OCONUS

Abstract: In their brief history, mobile devices have evolved to become the critical link between
a remote user and the home office, providing travelers with access to business
applications and data they would otherwise lack. Ensuring that this line of communication is private and secure is imperative. The security guidance outlined below applies to U.S. Government personnel using Government-issued commercial mobile devices in a public
network as they travel in foreign countries. The purpose is to minimize an adversary's
ability to obtain sensitive data through mobile devices and limit damage should one be compromised. The mitigations address a range of threats that might be encountered in foreign countries.
