Now Available! NIST SP 1800-21 Mobile Device Security: Corporate-Owned Personally-Enabled (COPE)


The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has released the final version of the NIST Cybersecurity Practice Guide Special Publication (SP) 1800-21 Mobile Device Security: Corporate-Owned Personally-Enabled (COPE).

Mobile devices provide access to vital workplace resources while giving employees the flexibility to perform their daily activities. One mobile device deployment model is Corporate-Owned Personally-Enabled (COPE). These mobile devices are owned by the enterprise and issued to the employee. COPE architectures provide the flexibility of allowing both enterprises and employees to install applications onto organization-owned mobile devices.

NIST SP 1800-21 provides an example solution demonstrating how organizations can use a standards-based approach and commercially available technologies to meet their security and privacy needs for using mobile devices to access enterprise resources.
