The same technology that helps you in the office is a major problem on the road. Like this: "So recently I was in this hotel in Silicon Valley and I was feeling somewhat puckish. I noticed that one person's computer was listed. I clicked on his computer to see if file sharing was turned on. It was, and in a moment, I could see his entire hard drive, including a "private" folder filled with PDFs of his credit card and other banking statements, and loads of business documents."

Yes, it is tempting. Hopefully, more folks will get the message.

Hi David,

Fantastic article! Can't tell you how many times I've been tempted to do what you did, just to show people how they need to lock things down. And it's not just hotels..people need to look at what's going on next time they're at any random cafe, working there for the day. Such a simple thing, but people don't change things until they get burned.

Hope our readers will take the advice to heart!
