The Smart Traveler's Guide to Data Theft Protection
Travelers are even more open to identity theft than normal users, being at the mercy of questionable Internet cafes, shady wireless access points, and tempted by all manner of pirated forbidden fruits on the street corners. But few take the time to take precautions to safeguard their personal information while traveling. The silver lining to this cloud is that, with a combination of not-so-common sense and a knowledge of the threats that are out there, it is relatively easy to prevent identity theft while on the road.
This article is intended to provide a basic introduction to the potentials for identity theft that face the road warrior, though it should not be taken as a substitute for one's own judgment in different situations. Above all it is a guide, and like all guides should be taken with a grain of salt to better suit the tastes of its reader. The Smart Traveler's Guide to Data Theft Protection | Tom's Networking
