​A harsh reality for any employee who participates in frequent international business travel is that computing activities on your phones, laptops, tablets, and, even your Bluetooth devices, is just not safe. For those of you who are unfamiliar with these cybersecurity risks, the simple recommendation—which should be cemented within any business’s travel policy and IT security awareness training—is to only connect to “trusted” networks in foreign businesses and hotels. And, even then, there are still substantial risks from man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks all the way through compromised networks that are leaking data. Foreign networks that you think you can “trust”, like your favorite hotel chain, are really “untrusted” and must always be connected to with caution.
