Cybersecurity While Traveling

February 23, 2017

Recommendations for cybersecurity while traveling abroad often sound like they were taken directly from the plot of a spy movie: use clean, "throw-away" devices, accounts, and passwords; assume your devices and information will be compromised; pull the batteries out of your devices before discussing sensitive information. Similar, although slightly less scary, recommendations abound for travelers going on vacation: don't post your location online; don't use public Wi-Fi.
