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
