The iCloud feature (and associated iCloud setting in iOS) stores iOS device data on Apple controlled servers. Sensitive DoD data saved on the iOS device could be compromised when it is stored on the Apple servers. Acceptable backup methods include backup to the MDM server or backup to a DoD PC via a USB connection.
1. Make a list of all iOS security policies listed on the MDM server that have been assigned to iOS devices and review each policy. 2. Select each security policy iOS devices are assigned to, and in turn, verify the required settings are in the policy. Verify "Allow iCloud Backup" is not enabled.
Mark as a finding if not set as required.
Note: If there is a finding, note the name of the policy in the Findings Details section in VMS/Component Provided Tracking Database.
