It is for individual Government departments to manage their own technology and telecommunications requirements in accordance with their business and security needs, including equipping their Ministers with appropriate ICT equipment. HMG takes the secure use of mobile phones very seriously and advice on how to securely manage mobile devices is published by the National Cyber Security Centre. Such information includes recommending the use of Android devices on the Android Enterprise Recommended (AER) list and for iOS, using supported devices with a Secure Enclave.
