Paulius Petretis, leading cyber security expert and CEO of VORAS Consulting recognizes that cybercriminals do not confine themselves to the corporate arena and he provides a series of tips that can help travelers protect themselves from becoming victims while traveling.
Vilnius, Lithuania – June 18, 2018 – Paulius Petretis, CEO of VORAS Consulting posted a new article on the company website entitled “How To Be Tech Savvy While Traveling.” Mr. Petretis steps outside the corporate arena knowing that cybercriminals do as well.
Petretris acknowledges that stealing credit card info, hacking into financial information and private information that can lead to identity theft and other serious problems is not confined to the corporate arena. He writes, “Since our business is exclusively dealing in the corporate arena, you may be surprised to be exposed to tips for the home environment.” He adds elaborating, “Well, not even the home environment, but for the travel season. Those of us involved in cybersecurity know that the criminals do not confine themselves to the corporate arenas. In fact, much of the information they gather that allows them to steal money and hack into corporate IT data comes from social media.”
“With that in mind,” says Petrtetis, “I’m offering tips to help keep you and those with whom you travel, be it family, business associates or friends safe during this busy travel and vacation season.” He continues adding, “Every person in the family is on the Internet pretty much 24/7. It is important to limit tech use while traveling for safety purposes. Nothing has the power to ruin a family vacation faster than stolen data, credit card info, or devices.”

According to the annual survey initiated by the Info Security Europe, a whopping 93% of large organizations and 76% of small businesses had at least a single information security breach in 2011. Only 18% of the organizations affected by the infringements related to data protection laws had a consistent and effective contingency plan in place. According to Paulius, information is not something static – it evolves and mutates every day. It is the ecosystem of every business and if a single cell fails, it can bring down the entire business.
Therefore ensuring a consistent and up-to-date information protection policy must be the priority for all businesses – no matter how big or small they are. As it might be unrealistic to believe that any young or experienced entrepreneur can be the jack of all trades, the really smart decision is to rely on specialists who dedicate their professional lives to getting to know everything there is to know about protecting important business information.
With more than 16 years of experience in helping people, small businesses, and government organizations to protect their business secrets, Paulius believes that information security must help businesses achieve goals but not vice versa.
