Have you ever found yourself on the road connecting to a public access point? If you have, you might have put yourself at risk from a security standpoint. In this course, Cyber Security While Traveling, you'll learn about situations where you're at risk and how to keep your information and electronics secure. First, you'll learn about the important "Travel Triangle of Security." Then, you'll explore different wireless and wired situations as well as the concerns that might come from them. Finally, this course will cover threats and countermeasures with a demonstration on how to best protect yourself. By the end of this course, you'll be able to apply what you've learned about cyber security to keep your data secure, whether in the airport, on the train, or across the globe.
Conclusion Vulnerabilities exist for both wired and wireless. While on the road this is pretty much the same as when you're at home or in the office. Protections are mostly the same too. The threat density may be a lot greater though. Security is a dynamic status, just keep improving it and learn from mistakes. Learning from the mistakes of others is always the preferred method. Best practices and a healthy amount of paranoia will go a long way. Good luck, I hope this helps. Thank you for viewing this course.
