This S&T study recommends federal agencies adopt a continuous approach to standards-based mobile app vetting by integrating vetting tools with EMM and exploring nontraditional approaches, such as app threat intelligence. These approaches would improve overall federal system mobile device and enterprise security while also enabling employees to use apps to conduct business and accomplish their organization’s mission.
FRRG is an all-volunteer working group that includes 150 members of state, local, federal and tribal law enforcement agencies, fire departments, emergency medical services, emergency management and other disciplines.
