IT security departments have used guidance from NIST and other sources to help them defend the vulnerable connections between mobile devices and enterprise computer systems from malware, viruses and other types of attacks. Recently, organizations from both the public and private sectors have requested more specific information on threats and ways to mitigate them.
The draft Mobile Threat Catalogue (MTC) and the accompanying draft Assessing Threats to Mobile Devices & Infrastructure (NIST Interagency Report 8144 seek to answer those requests. To strengthen the catalogue, the authors request practitioners and experts in the field to review the catalogue and provide feedback and additional information. Please send comments on both projects to Nistir8144@nist.gov by October 12, 2016.
