Travelling with laptops: keeping your data safe

Travelling with laptops

Keeping your data safe

With airlines introducing a ban on laptops and tablets in hand luggage on direct flights to the UK from 6 countries this week, questions have already been raised about the security of business assets.

It is widely acknowledged that hold luggage is more vulnerable to damage and theft, and travellers are being advised to check their insurance policies cover valuables placed in the hold. As security is tightened at airports around the globe, electronic devices in the cabin could even become a thing of the past.

What does this mean for business?

The Cloud

The best way to ensure your data is not vulnerable if your company laptops are damaged or stolen is to ensure you keep that data in the cloud rather than locally on the device. This could be through using a solution such as Microsoft Office 365, or it could be hosting your data at a secure UK data centre and accessing it via a VPN or similar.

Encryption

If there is no way to avoid putting sensitive data onto the device, then you should ensure that it is encrypted so that if the device is stolen, it cannot be accessed. Of course, this does not protect against damage which could make your data unrecoverable.

Need advice?

If you want to find out more about managing the risks to your data when your staff travel within the UK or abroad, our cyber-security team would be happy to help.
