How to be a smart traveler

Now that we all rely on mobile devices to work, one of the worst things that can happen is being out of town and losing your phone, tablet or laptop. This can happen to anyone, so it’s important that you implement the right tools and rules when you are travelling for work. 

Here are a few tips for mobile work: 

  1. Make sure that critical data doesn’t live solely on a mobile device
  2. If data is sensitive, make sure the mobile device storing the data has encryption at rest
  3. Ensure that the device has strong authentication and password rules, so that an unauthorized user cannot immediately access the data
