Wireless Security: Securing your laptop

One of the benefits of a wireless network is the portability of computers. However, this can also lead to a serious wireless security risk – theft of computer. If you are traveling and using your computer in a hot spot area, do not leave it lying around outside of your eyesight. Consider investing in a cable lock, which will secure your laptop (or desktop) to a stationary object. There are higher levels of security you can look into, such as cards that sound an alarm with unauthorized movement.
