Tech Talk: Staying Cyber Safe During Summer Travels

2016-04-20 CDT Tech Talk LONG logo

CDT’s Tech Talk is a podcast where we dish on tech and Internet policy, while also explaining what these policies mean to our daily lives. You can find Tech Talk on SoundCloud and on iTunes.

If you’re like me, you are beyond giddy that summer is here. I escaped to the beach for Memorial Day and have a fair amount of travel coming up.

But did you know that when you travel – especially when you cross international borders – that you are incredibly cyber insecure? It’s true and to help everyone stay more secure everyday, CDT created a pretty awesome online quiz to assess your cybersecurity, using the lens of international travel.

CDT’s staff technologist Greg Norcie led the creation of the quiz and is working to create a series of tools and resources to help us all stay safe online. He joined Tech Talk to discuss those those tips, which include pointers on public Wi-Fi, charging stations, and personal device security.
