To provide options for policies and procedures based on Gartner's knowledge of mobile device issues To provide language that can be adopted verbatim (or easily adapted) for an organization's policy documents Think of the policies in this template as options that you can incorporate into your organization's policy. In some sections, we have provided specific options that you can select. The policy language is crafted so that you can adopt it verbatim or modify it to your specific situation. We do not expect that all the issues covered in this policy template will apply to all organizations. Review the template document, discuss the topics and select the policies that will create the desired impacts of risk mitigation and cost control in your organization. We also recommend the following general guidelines for policy development practices: Engage stakeholders from the human resources, legal and/or compliance departments during the process. Include policies that are relevant to your organization's standard operating procedures. Do not adopt policies that your organization won't be able to enforce. The mobile device policy template includes a User Agreement section for the end-user's signature. Once the policies are changed, the IT organization can issue the policy document to existing and new employees and other end users. Periodically review your policy document to ensure that it is up to date with your organization's needs and related regulations. Help your end users comply with the policy by making it easy for them to understand. Use plain, clear language. Make the document as concise as possible. Policy Background and Context [Note for policy authors: You can add the following text or similar content to the introduction of your policy document.] The purpose of this policy is to define accepted practices, responsibilities and procedures for the use of personally owned mobile devices that [Organization name] authorizes to connect to enterprise systems. This policy defines the commitment requirement, provides guidance for the secure use of end-user mobile devices and provides reimbursement guidelines for all mobile endpoint devices, including mobile phones, smartphones and media tablets. June 2012 Page 4 At the core of this policy is the concept that the employee, through an opt-in decision, trades control over his/her personal device in exchange for access to corporate resources (such as the network and ). It is important that the consequences and obligations of this arrangement are well-understood. Therefore, we require a signature on the last page of this policy to confirm that it has been read and comprehended.

Media Tablet A tablet is an open-face wireless device with a touchscreen display and without physical keyboards. The primary use is the consumption of media; it also has messaging, scheduling, , and Internet capabilities. Diagonal screen dimensions are typically between 5 inches and 10 inches. Media tablets may have open-source OSs (such as Android) or a closed OS under the June 2012 Page 5 control of the OS vendor and/or device make (such as Apple's ios and Windows). Media tablets may or may not support an application store. Mobile Device This refers to any mobile phone, smartphone or media tablet.
