The NCCoE Buzz: Mobile Security Edition is a recurring newsletter on timely topics in mobile device cybersecurity and privacy from the NCCoE's Mobile Device Security project team.
The Mobile Threat Catalogue identifies threats to mobile devices and associated mobile infrastructure to support development and implementation of mobile security capabilities, best practices, and security solutions to better protect enterprise IT. Threats are divided into broad categories, primarily focused upon mobile applications and software, the network stack and associated infrastructure, mobile device and software supply chain, and the greater mobile ecosystem. Each threat identified is catalogued alongside explanatory and vulnerability information where possible, and alongside applicable mitigation strategies.
This is living document and we continue to appreciate your feedback. Please consult NISTIR 8144: Assessing Threats to Mobile Devices & Infrastructure for context and background information.
Upon review, we recognize that these NIST/NCCoE publications contain potentially biased terminology. As new publications are developed, they will follow NIST’s inclusive language guidance.
Mobile devices offer convenience and flexibility for organizations. This video provides an overview of how the NCCoE’s efforts can help organizations improve their mobile device deployments, while taking into consideration their security and privacy needs.
