With SmartPhones and Tablets’ mass explosion, pervasive wireless connectivity is almost a given at any organization. Insecure wireless configuration can provide an easy-open door for malicious threat actors.
The purpose of this policy is to secure and protect the information assets owned by eCuras. eCuras provides computer devices, networks, and other electronic information systems to meet missions, goals, and initiatives. eCuras grants access to these resources as a privilege and must manage them responsibly to maintain the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of all information assets.
This policy specifies the conditions that wireless infrastructure devices must satisfy to connect to the eCuras network. Only those wireless infrastructure devices that meet the standards set in this policy or are granted an exception by the Information Security Department are approved for connectivity to a eCuras network.
All employees, contractors, consultants, temporary and other workers at eCuras, including all personnel affiliated with third parties that maintain a wireless infrastructure device on behalf of eCuras must adhere to this policy. This policy applies to all wireless infrastructure devices that connect to a eCuras network or reside on a eCuras site that provides wireless connectivity to endpoint devices, including but not limited to laptops, desktops, cellular phones, and tablets. This includes any form of wireless communication device capable of transmitting packet data.
