Allari: Wireless Communication Policy

Allari:  Wireless Communication Policy
  1. Overview
    With the mass explosion of Smart Phones and Tablets, pervasive wireless connectivity is almost a given at any organization. Insecure wireless configuration can provide an easy open door for malicious threat actors.
  2. Purpose
    The purpose of this policy is to secure and protect the information assets owned by Allari. Allari provides computer devices, networks, and other electronic information systems to meet missions, goals, and initiatives. Allari 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 Allari network. Only those wireless infrastructure devices that meet the standards specified in this policy or are granted an exception by the Information Security Department are approved for connectivity to a Allari network.
  3. Scope
    All employees, contractors, consultants, temporary and other workers at Allari, including all personnel affiliated with third parties that maintain a wireless infrastructure device on behalf of Allari must adhere to this policy. This policy applies to all wireless infrastructure devices that connect to a Allari network or reside on a Allari site that provide 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.

      2. Wireless infrastructure devices that fail to conform to the Home Wireless Device Requirements must be installed in a manner that prohibits direct access to the Allari corporate network.
