The Challenge with Employee/Executive Travel
An executive has an important meeting or presentation away from the office. The laptop or tablet is most often loaded with confidential data….and not just the data for that meeting but all the other confidential corporate data and documents on that device. Besides the hassle of lugging around the equipment during the trip and going through the TSA procedures at each airport stop, the data is at risk during the entire trip. Time spent on unsecure networks and lost laptops and tablets potentially put all of your confidential enterprise data and files in the hands of those with bad intentions. And what do you do when flying internationally and logging into the hotel WiFi system and your system begins to malfunction…. without knowing that you have downloaded malware that steals your corporate secrets and/or personal credentials to penetrate your corporate network? In addition to the obvious damage, you are most likely required by state or federal law to make the security lapse public.
