Holiday Security

  rawprawn 17:41 20 Sep 09

What precautions do you take when you go on holiday for a couple of weeks?
We all must do our best to ensure our sensitive data is protected.
I am going to Corfu tomorrow (5.30am) And have locked down as far as I can my computer.
I would be interseted to know how others protect their data.
(Laptop, attached by security wire)what about software entry?

Anything that could be described as sensitive is within a Truecrypt container with a long passphrase.

Anyone can steal my desktops or laptops and my data is as secure as I can make it.

I am not important enough to have any 'sensitive' data.

You don't have a bank account then? or several passwords which let you enter private sites?

I use Hide Folders, you can then use something like Truecrypt on top. I use AXcrypt

It is not a question of importance but common sense to me.

I have many usernames and passwords for sites on which I make purchases etc, I personally would rather keep those personal.

It is rash to use the same for all sites so with many combinations to remember I prefer to keep a record. I now need to remember one passphrase only.

To access my bank/build. soc. accounts you would need to know a memorable word for each one that is not written down anywhere. Passwords for these sites are written down but in a way that only I can understand.
Like I wrote earlier, I am not important enough to have 'sensitive' data and the only 'private' sites I visit are this one, Ebay and a handful of others whose passwords I can easily remember.
