NIST updates mobile security guidelines

I am only gonna bitch about this a little...

Is NIST really telling me to worry about C-I-A, as if that isn't a basic IT Security requirement?  And it is somehow different for mobile vs. everything else?

What is NIST paying for this good advice?

Co-author and NIST guest researcher Karen Scarfone said mobile devices need to have multiple security objectives supported, including integrity, availability and confidentiality. Companies that have these bases covered will have an easier time protecting sensitive information.
