Holiday Travel Tips from PCS

The holiday season is upon us, and for many, that means traveling to be with loved ones. At PCS, we understand the importance of staying connected and secure while on the move. To ensure your holiday travels are smooth and worry-free, here are some essential IT tips to keep in mind.

Beware of Juice Jacking

Picture this: You're at the airport, and your device is running low on battery. Resist the temptation to plug into any available USB port. Juice Jacking is a real threat, where hackers can compromise your device by injecting malicious software. Instead, opt for a wall outlet or carry a portable charger to keep your devices charged without the risk. As your trusted IT Company, PCS prioritizes your cybersecurity even during your travels.


Use Caution with Public Wi-Fi:

Public Wi-Fi is a convenient way to stay connected while on the go, but it comes with its risks. Cybercriminals can exploit vulnerabilities in these networks to gain access to your sensitive data. Consider using a Virtual Private Network (VPN) for an added layer of security, ensuring your online activities remain private and protected. When it comes to IT services near you, PCS has your back, providing solutions to keep you secure wherever you are.


Prioritize Data Backup

Holiday memories are precious and losing them due to a device failure can be heartbreaking. PCS recommends making data backup a priority. Whether it's your cherished photos or important documents, regularly back up your data to a secure cloud service or an external hard drive. This ensures that even if the unexpected happens, your memories remain intact. As your go-to Managed IT Service Provider, PCS ensures that your data is secure and accessible.
