Course Listing For Courses AC Financial Accounting 3 Credits This course is an introduction to accounting concepts and the elements of financial statements including basic accounting vocabulary and analysis of business transactions from an accounting viewpoint. Students will be required to recognize, record, and classify new accounting data. Emphasis is placed on corporate accounting.
These requests are not surprising given the increase in the DON's enterprise mobility capability. As this capability increases, our mobile devices become more closely integrated with our desktop environment — for both voice and data applications — and more critical to our ability to perform our jobs.
Many people, of course, work full or part time in environments where these devices are prohibited and most tend to accept the prohibition as a function of their job requirements. On the other hand, for the many people whose jobs occasionally entail going into classified areas, the prospect of being without the information stored on the device even for a short period of time is viewed as a significant impediment and has led to this rise in inquiries.
Regardless of your job requirements, if you fall into the category of wanting this capability, well, there is a policy for that! DoD Policy, "No, but …" The standard reply to an inquiry regarding bringing a commercial cellular device into a classified space is "No, but …" As in all things wireless, we turn for overarching guidance to DoD Directive The relevant sections state: The responsible CTTA shall evaluate the equipment using risk management principles and determine the appropriate minimum separation distances and countermeasures.
Therefore, while the presumptive answer is "no," if there is a bona fide mission requirement, there may well be a way to get your BlackBerry into that restricted space — but you have to convince your local security authority and the DAA first. Their risk management evaluation will weigh the benefits of such approval against the security risks inherent in the scenario of cellular devices in an area where there is also classified information.
Risky Business You may ask, "How risky can it be? After all, I use this device everyday and have never had a problem. To gain an appreciation of the risk, go to your favorite Internet search engine and search for "cellular vulnerabilities" or a similar phrase.
The results may surprise you. Although we refer to them as mobile "phones," any cellular device is actually a mobile radio, one that receives and transmits just like any other radio. Further, they do a fair amount of transmitting and receiving on their own outside of your oversight or control.
Cellular networks operate on two distinct sets of channels — the traffic channel where your calls and data sessions are conducted, and the control channel, which handles network maintenance, operational tasks and text messages.
The control channel can also put the phone in diagnostic mode, which includes turning on the microphone. This, in a nutshell, is the primary reason that cellular devices are not allowed in classified spaces.
Using the control channel, an adversary or run-of-the-mill hacker could turn on the microphone — without any visible change in the phone's appearance — and freely listen in.
Thus, you have just brought a bug into an area where classified information is now being transmitted into the ether. Not a pleasant scenario. In addition to the inherent cellular vulnerabilities, all electronic equipment is capable of emitting electronic emanations.
TEMPEST refers to the shielding of these electromagnetic emanations, which is different from the actual interception of these emissions. Due to the vulnerabilities associated with electronic equipment in general, it is mandated that the CTTA play a role in accepting the use of these devices in classified spaces.
Process and Practice Given these risks, it is clear why the presumptive answer is no.
If, nonetheless, you still believe there is a mission requirement to maintain possession of your cellular device when in an area where it is normally prohibited, you may begin the process outlined in DoDD It is important to note that the risk management and approval processes are tied to specific locations — not to individuals or job functions.
While there are general vulnerabilities shared by all wireless devices, the specifics of any given location could either mitigate or aggravate the risks that would be incurred by the introduction of a device.
If approved, the practice is managed locally under the overarching guidelines specified by the DAA. Day-to-day compliance monitoring and enforcement of any mitigation actions would be conducted under the auspices of the CSA for the location.
Such mitigation actions could include allowing only government-owned and inventoried mobile devices into the Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility SCIF. Disabling all radios while in a SCIF should be strictly monitored and enforced as well e.
In addition, requiring mandatory user awareness training should be implemented for all users who work in classified environments. Future It is likely that the desire to use BlackBerrys and other commercial cellular devices in classified spaces will only grow.
However, the vulnerabilities of devices designed for consumer consumption will not be easily overcome. Even the secure mobile environment, portable electronic device SME PEDrecently deployed, is prevented by DoD policy from being brought into an area where classified information resides — and it has a "SCIF" switch that turns off the radio.
Moving forward, the DON remains engaged with industry and our government partners to develop additional, secure use cases for commercial, cellular-based technologies. We are also engaged in a review and re-write of DON wireless policy; you may participate by joining the discussion on the Pulse, the DON collaborative site for the information management and information technology community https: Mike Hernon is the former chief information officer for the city of Boston and currently serves as an independent consultant.
