The law firm Gmez-Acebo & Pombo lists a series of recommendations so that executives do not fall into the networks of cybercriminals.

  1. To take care of the sensitive data of a company, the ideal is to take a computer configured for the trip with the minimum possible information.
  2. It is better not to use shared computers where private topics are to be consulted. Nor do you have to connect to public Wi-Fi networks.
  3. You must always opt for virtual private networks (VPNs) that guarantee an encrypted connection to remotely access the company's system.
  4. Public chargers offered, for example, at airports can also be a gateway for cybercriminals.
  5. For laptops with sensitive information, you can only rely on USB or portable hard drives provided by the company itself.
  6. During the trip, you have to avoid that someone can look at the screen or the keyboard or listen to a telephone conversation.
  7. The out-of-office message must be properly configured so that excessive travel information is not given.
  8. It is crucial not to lose sight of either the computer or the mobile or a single second. In the hotel you have to leave them in the safe.
