A recent Air Forces Central Command and 380th Air Expeditionary Wing policy prohibits all personnel from bringing portable electronic devices (PED) into most workcenters on the installation. A PED is any electronic device that would have the capability to record audio, video, save notes or has wireless communication ability. PED’s can pose a threat to cyber security by allowing sensitive or classified information to be transferred illegally and allow adversaries to collect electronic signals emitted by classified systems. Examples of PEDs include, but are not limited to, BlackBerrys, cell phones, personal digital assistants (PDAs), laptops, MP3 players, iPods, iPads, digital photo frames, non-government USB devices/external hard drives, computer tablets, and GPS watches.
