Suzanne Sangiovese spoke with Ian Barker at Beta News about the risks of public Wi-Fi and what you can do to stay safe when travelling.
“The demands of daily lives increasingly mean that we want to be connected wherever we are. Add in the shift to hybrid working and we’re likely to want to be in touch with the office all the time too.
That makes the lure of free public Wi-Fi. Whether it’s in a coffee shop, a hotel or an airport, hard to resist, especially if you have a limited data allowance on your mobile contract. But of course using public networks always comes with a side order of added risk.
This is especially true as we approach the holiday season when people’s guard is more likely to be down. We spoke to Suzanne Sangiovese, director of travel and technology at travel risk intelligence firm Riskline. We found out just how dangerous using these networks can be and how to protect yourself.”
