Safety on the Road

Common sense practices can help keep our organization’s information secure when you’re traveling or working remotely.

In a recent survey, more than 75 percent of employees admitted to not using privacy guards when working in public places.

With go-anywhere mobile devices, “work” can happen anywhere—at home, on a subway, in your hotel room, at a coffee shop. But remember, when working away from the office, our security policies still apply.

Tips for working securely when you’re out and about include:


Riding public transit:

  • ​Don’t talk about sensitive information where people can overhear your conversation.
  • ​Check your seat before leaving to make sure you haven’t left your mobile device behind.
  • ​Keep your laptop or tablet close rather than in the trunk or an overhead compartment.

 

Visiting airport terminals or on airplanes:

  • ​Never check in your mobile devices or USB drives with your luggage. Make sure these are within reach at all times.
  • ​Keep an eye on your mobile devices when they are scanned at the security checkpoint.
  • ​When working in airport terminals and on the airplane, make sure you’re using secure Wi-Fi connections.

 

Staying in hotels:

  • ​Lock your laptop in the room safe or store it out of sight when you leave your hotel room.
  • ​Don’t conduct business in the hotel lobby or other public areas where people can overhear your conversation or see your laptop screen.

 

Working in restaurants, coffee shops, and other public places:

  • ​Keep your voice down when conducting business on your mobile device.
  • ​Don’t access sensitive information if your laptop screen is within plain view of other people
  • ​If you take a break or leave your seat, even for a minute, make sure to bring your mobile devices with you.

 

If you’re using off-site Wi-Fi to connect to our company’s network, take these precautions:

  • Track your mobile devices when they are scanned at the security checkpoint.
  • Make sure you use a Wi-Fi network that requires a security key or has some other form of security.
  • Configure your device to let you “approve” the access before you connect.
  • Turn off your Wi-Fi when you’re not using it.
  • Make sure your antivirus software and firewall are running at all times.
  • Set browser security settings on medium or high security level.
