It is summertime! Are your employees preparing for vacation? Or maybe some business trips ahead? Travel means leaving the controlled environment, so that means your employees’ devices and data are vulnerable to cybersecurity risks. Here are some travel safety tips from the COBIDU Cybersecurity eLearning collection!
-Disable risky features of your mobile devices like Bluetooth, NFC, Automatic Wi-Fi, etc. Also, be careful about auto-connect.
-Make sure all your devices are fully backed up and protected with strong passwords and encryption.
-Use a temporary travel account and redirect your mails to this temporary account instead of connecting to your work mail
-Use regular outlets to charge your devices instead of using USB ports to charge your devices. Charging stations may contain malicious software.
-Try to avoid public Wi-Fi networks. If you have to use one, make sure it is a legit network. Cybercriminals may install fake networks. You can also use your mobile phone as a hub spot.
-Use virtual private network options of your devices to encrypt online connection.
-Do not share your itinerary with people you don’t personally know and trust. Especially not on social media and similar public mediums.
-Always carry your devices with you. Do not leave them with people you don’t know, even for grabbing a quick coffee.
