CMMC Practice Requirement:
Control connection of mobile devices.
CMMC Requirement Explanation:
Mobile devices that don't meet your organization's security requirements can pose security risks. By enrolling devices into your MDM solution that want to connect to your network you can force them to meet your security requirements.
Example CMMC Implementation:
Document a set of requirements that mobile devices need to meet before they connect to your network. Mobile devices refer to phones and tablets. Use a mobile device management (MDM) system to enforce your mobile device security requirements. This would apply to both company owned devices and employee owned personal devices. If an employee does not want to register with your mobile device management system then do not grant their device access to your network.
- Scenario 1:
A user wants to connect his smart phone to the network. He is unable to do so unless he enrolls in your mobile device management solution. After enrolling special security settings defined by your company are applied to his smart phone.
