2- Obtain a “throwaway” or “high-risk zone” device. If you are traveling to an area that has a high risk for hacking--China, for example--get a temporary or pre-paid device dedicated for use while you’re in that risky zone. After the trip, devices should be wiped, reset to their factory settings, and then re-imaged with their corporate configurations and software.
3- Backup all your data before leaving.
4-Turn off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Whenever possible and practical, keep them off for the duration of the trip.
5-Notify your credit card company and bank where and when you are traveling. This helps reduce the odds of payments being denied when you try to shop in some far-away place. In addition, you improve the chances of preventing fraudulent charges being made closer to home while you are away.
