Laptop security on the road

  nuffsaid 12:46 31 May 2008

I am totally new to laptops. Having just invested in a nice Novatech I would like to use it for connecting to the internet when travelling. What do I need to do in respect of beefing up security?

if it's secure here, it will be just as secure abrooad. Provided you've taken the usual precautions - anti-virus/spyware, and you have turned on the Windows firewall you'll be fine.

I've used laptops in many countries for years, and I've never experienced any additional security problems.
