Foreign Travel With Digital Devices
I enjoyed participating in a panel discussion today at Intuit regarding foreign travel with digital devices. A few take aways for those who couldn’t make it: 1. Try to travel with a “clean” laptop with no company data or saved passwords; 2. Be aware you may need to open and in effect decrypt your data when passing through borders of some countries or risk losing your device or your freedom; 3. You have no 4th amendment protection from search and seizure passing through US Customs; 4. Have your device analyzed upon return if you suspect it was accessed.
