OIT issues travel security guidelines

Published: March 3, 2023 Author: Staff reports

While traveling or taking vacations, many students, faculty and staff continue to access Ohio University programs and applications. This not only opens individuals up to physical risks, such as loss or theft, but can also increase exposure to digital risks, like using unsecured Wi-Fi networks, for example. Fortunately, these risks can be reduced by following a few simple precautions when you travel. 

The Office of Information Technology (OIT) has curated information security guidelines for travel that can help protect your digital privacy and security while you’re away from home. These guidelines are especially important to consider if you’re traveling internationally. If you have questions or would like more information, please contact the Information Security Office.
