Stenbit works on Pentagon wireless policy

John Stenbit, Defense Department CIO

The Defense Department soon will put in place a policy restricting personnel from using wireless devices while at the Pentagon.

CIO John Stenbit said he is fine-tuning the policy and expects to sign off on a final version by the end of the month.

In addition, DOD will establish a separate policy on use of wireless devices for all Defense facilities in the United States and abroad.

Stenbit said the Pentagon policy would restrict use of devices such as personal digital assistants and wireless network cards, as well as some cellular phones and electronic pagers, for government business.
