Traveling out of the country soon…protect your laptop.

Cnet’s Iconoclast blog has posted good steps to securing your data on your laptop when Customs decides to take it and scour it for any data that they deem a security threat.  The Customs’ agents can (and will) take your laptop, copy your data, and then return it days (maybe even weeks) later.

Now, I am all for “Homeland Security,” and protecting our borders; but don’t you think there might be a better way to go about this?

Read the blog and decide for yourself.
