10 Tips to Stop Cyber-Criminals from Ruining Your Holiday

Often when we go on holiday we jeopardise our own personal information, either by using credit cards in foreign countries, announcing our travels on social media or using open networks while travelling. Below are 10 tips on how to be more cautious when on holiday.

1  Don’t shout it from the rooftops

Don’t broadcast your upcoming holiday on social media. And if you do, then don’t reveal too many details about your plans. This information could be useful for someone with a sinister motive and could leave your home and valuables exposed.

Make sure you deactivate your GPS. This way you don’t have to worry about it giving away clues of your whereabouts which might avert criminals to the fact that you’re out of town.

2  Back-up all your devices

If you have decided  to take your laptop, tablet or smartphone with you on holiday Рdon’t forget to make back-ups of the data and store it in a secure place.

Employees looking for a change of scene, suppliers who do not pay on time or companies that go out of business Рthere are numerous reasons as to why business relationships may come to an end and companies should control what information is retained by those who are leaving and obtained by those who are entering.

It seems that many companies don’t pay much attention to this matter. There are few organisations that take the necessary precautions to prevent ex-employees from keeping information that belongs to the company. According to a study carried out by Osterman Research, 89% of the ex-employees keep the login and the password which gave them access to at least one of their former company’s services.
