What to do when traveling
Note: IT assumes that Purdue business travelers who take their computers with them are using notebook computers, because only notebook computers are small enough to take on board public transportation systems safely.
- When traveling, carry your notebook computer with you at all times. Do not check it with luggage or leave it in a hotel or a car. These are not secure locations. If you cannot follow these precautions, then do not take your computer.
- Always use the VPN system when logging in to Purdue networks.
- If you log in to your computer in an unsecure place (such as a public area), change your password once you have returned to the safety of a secure location.
- Never use free kiosks or internet café computers to log in to Purdue accounts.
- Never log in to Purdue accounts without using VPN.
- Never leave your computer unattended.
