We have written before about the importance of all of us recognizing that we are in a cyber conflict. The fact is that we are all targets. We all have to keep our wits about us. This includes tracking the cyber threat and best practices to mitigate the threat.
A period of significantly enhanced vulnerability is during travel. It is especially important to maintain best practices when on the go, including, of course, when traveling overseas.
The team at OODA have just produced a reference of best practices for reducing cyber risk while on the go, including both business travelers and those who just want to reduce their overall risk while on mobile devices. The recommendations are provided in tiers enabling easy tailoring based on your threat model.
- Tier 1: The minimum essential cybersecurity best practices that should be incorporated into every trip and an executives’ daily cyber hygiene.
- Tier 2: Additional protections that should be put in place for travel to some countries or by organizations that want to adopt a more robust security profile.
- Tier 3: Advanced security practices for travel to high risk countries or for highly targeted executives.
