Reminder: The Postal Service wants you to keep your devices and information safe while traveling.
Information security is not limited to the home or office. It’s also important to keep personal and business information secure when you’re on the road.
The more you access the Internet while traveling, the more potential security risks you face.
Here are some tips:
- Before leaving the office for travel or vacation, lock all hard copies of USPS information resources in a secure filing cabinet.
- If you’re on the road, lock your devices in the trunk of your car before leaving the vehicle.
- When leaving a hotel room, fasten your laptop to an unmovable object by using a locking device or lock your computer in the room safe.
- Never leave your devices unattended in a public space.
- Before leaving your home or office, disable remote connectivity and Bluetooth capabilities to prevent your devices from connecting to unstable wireless networks.
- Don’t use non-USPS devices to collect, process, store or transmit Postal Service sensitive-enhanced, sensitive or non-publicly available information.
