There is no managed firewall nor a support team that can
shut things down or turn things up for them; they would be
head to head with the hacker nerding out on a computer a
few seats away. Should be scary if you are really thinking
about it!

Before You Go:

A – Update your software:

unpatched software (operating system as well as installed applications) is by default software that has known vulnerabilities that are known to the public. Shut those doors down before you leave the safety of your office!

B – Backup:

Just in case the device itself got lost, stolen, broken, or damaged it will be a lifesaver to have both installed applications and saved information backed up. Restoring an average business computer or phone can take as little as minutes! My favorite way is to clone the hard drive into a cloud server, which makes it instantaneous to restore from anywhere in the world to any machine in the world; so if you broke your laptop while away you can buy any laptop from any store and log into “your laptop” in the cloud and work as if nothing had happened.

C – Keep things locked:

Change your settings to auto-lock as quickly as your settings would permit. Always lock everything even if you are leaving “for just a second”; there is technology that anyone can buy for as little as $20 that can compromise your laptop in exactly
just a second.

D- Stop auto-connecting to WIFI:

Stop autoconnection especially to WIFI, that’s true, but also to Bluetooth or other means available on your devices.

E- Connect to public WIFI only through a VPN connection:

And Only through a VPN connections. Yes, it’s shockingly true, the internet in your hotel room is also public WIFI; so don’t get a false sense of security!

F – Stay away from publicly accessible computers:

Computers such as in airports or hotel lobbies; you can risk having all your keystrokes registered and stolen by an attacker which will open doors to identity theft and impersonation and industrial spying to name just a few things.

Always consult a professional before you take a trip, a piece of free
advice can sometimes save your life-long work.
