Doing Business Securely Outside of the Office

Whether going to a coffee shop for meetings or a change of scenery, or out and about visiting clients, or traveling to a seminar or convention — often we carry with us mobile gear such as laptops, Blackberries or Treos. That means we end up with security concerns for two sets of equipment: our computers we use while in the office and all the mobile gear we use outside the office.

Success Magazine brought three of us together last week for a panel discussion, produced by PodTech, on this very topic:

Mobile technology isn’t just cool; it’s essential for today’s small business. Our experts separate the hype from the hard truth when it comes to getting business done securely on the road.

My esteemed co-panelists were Jeff Zbar of Chief Home Officer and Pamela Baker, a technology writer for Success Magazine.

  1. Mobile devices, from laptops to PDAs, can be very helpful to entrepreneurs, but also pose a liability when the information contained within isn’t properly secured… so it’s really up to each individual business to decide whether mobile devices will be a helpful resource of a security risk.

    We’ve got a library of short articles on various security topics as they apply specifically to small businesses at my company’s website, in case anyone is interested in reading up on some of these issues. (Anita if this link isn’t okay to post, feel free to edit or delete this comment!)
