Do not put phones and laptops in checked baggage. Hard drives may be imaged and data/devices may be stolen. Ditto on other valuable items: leave the jewels at home! Beware of sensitive conversations anywhere. Not a work trip? Make your companions happy- dont discuss work! Work trip? Discuss sensitive matters in the office. While Abroad
You should have no expectation of privacy abroad…even in your hotel room! Bugged rooms, recorded calls, and searches of luggage while travelers are away are known collection techniques.
