1. Never leave valuables in open, unguarded locations such as exhibit halls or meeting rooms between sessions. ODSC cannot be held responsible for any loss or damage.
  2. Don’t be lulled into a false sense of security by the security guards at the venue. Their job is to insure the safety and legitimacy of attendees, not a guest’s personal belongings.
  3. Ensure all data is backed up to the cloud or to an external hard drive before starting a trip.
  4. Encrypt data so in the event of theft all sensitive information is safe.
  5. Invest in affordable gadget and mobile insurance so devices can be replaced quickly in the event of a loss.
