Personal phones could be banned at Pentagon as result of Mattis-ordered review


Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON — An ongoing review of policies governing the use of personal electronics at military sites around the world could lead to a ban on the use of non-government cellphones at the Pentagon, according to defense officials.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis ordered the review to determine the implications personal electronic devices – ranging from small fitness trackers to smartphones and tablets – could have on the Defense Department’s security, according to officials who requested anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter. Mattis has expressed concerns about recent incidents in which Defense Department workers brought their personal phones into areas restricted due to the presence of classified material, one official said Wednesday. https://www.stripes.com/news/personal-phones-could-be-banned-at-pentagon-as-result-of-mattis-ordered-review-1.509373
