Control is new to this version of the control set and incorporates the following control from the previous version: MOS-18: Remote Wipe.

Control Statement

Define, implement and evaluate processes, procedures and technical measures to enable the deletion of company data remotely on managed endpoint devices.

Implementation Guidance

Define, implement and evaluate processes, procedures, and technical measures to enable the deletion of company data remotely on managed endpoint devices, such as when a device is lost or stolen. Only rarely should the network administrator or device owner issue the remote wipe command since it is potentially destructive and removes all content until the device returns to its factory state.

Auditing Guidance

  1. Examine procedures for adequacy, currency, communication, and effectiveness.
  2. Determine the extent and applicability of the processes, procedures, and technical measures over managed endpoints, as identified.
  3. Examine policy and procedures for evidence of review, with respect to effectiveness.
