For anyone or any business frequently working away from the home office, there are particular security and privacy concerns.

Luckily, there are now a variety of tools, from webcam covers to encrypted flash drives that can raise the bar on security.

Check the market for tools and gadgets that…

  1. Lock the laptop – Today you can find physical locks you set yourself, such as a retractable lock with a built in cable to tether your laptop to anything.
  2. Block your USB Ports – Similar to laptop locks, there are blockers on the market that are installed into USB ports with a matching key that cannot be easily removed without it. Keep hackers from accessing your data uploading malicious software via USB.
  3. Network routers – These have the ability to plug into a LAN port or configure it as a Wi-Fi range extender for anonymous, secure internet use.
  4. Webcam covers – stick with a basic webcam cover to maintain security or really cover yourself with features such as advanced infrared detection capabilities to securely authenticate and log users.
  5. Automatic Security Locks – access a security token that automatically locks your computer when you walk away and unlocks it when you return.

Stay Secure.
