After we did a hasty search for a Virtual Private Network (VPN) provider that works in Gabon (surprisingly, googling "best vpn in gabon" worked great at obtaining this information), I discussed a few other must-haves. Fortunately, I had my list of Top Security Tips for Educators handy but decided to whittle it down for her...what I actually emailed her appears below my question to you....
What would you add for a world traveler?
1) Keeping your passwords safe.
There are many password managers, like 1Password, LastPass that are online, while others can be saved on your computer or device (e.g. Keepass). I like Keepass.
2) Encrypt confidential files
Encrypt confidential data (use Secure Space Encryptor (SSE)) laptop. If you decrypt confidential data, make sure to shred it off your computer (it's easy to recover deleted files). On your Windows computer, use the free File Shredder program.
3) Install antivirus/malware (if you haven't already)
5) Add a password or WiFi key to secure, encrypt your home wireless access once you get settled.
