DOD to set wireless policy

The Defense Department CIO is expected to sign a policy next month that will set guidelines for using wireless devices across the department. The new policy will revise the Pentagon Area Common IT Wireless Security Policy signed last fall, said Dawn Meyerriecks, chief technology officer for the Defense Information Systems Agency. DOD users and vendors should find the departmentwide policy more comprehensive than the Pentagon policy, she said.

The Pentagon policy prevents Pentagon employees from connecting a wireless device to a classified network or computer. It also bans synchronizing a wireless device with IT devices that have not been approved by the Pentagon.
