Holiday Travel Tip: Use Public Wi-Fi Safely
The NCCoE Buzz: Mobile Security Edition is a recurring email on timely topics in mobile device cybersecurity and privacy from the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence’s (NCCoE’s) Mobile Device Security project team.
It’s that time of the year again when we get on the road or head to the airport for a holiday vacation.
It may be convenient to use public wireless networks while traveling. However, an ineffectively secured mobile device that establishes a connection to an open public Wi-Fi hotspot may expose an individual, employee, or entire organization to data loss or a privacy compromise.
The NCCoE wishes you a happy Thanksgiving and safe travels. To learn more about how you can protect your mobile device while using public Wi-Fi, access our article below.
