Be secure in your physical space
Whether you're working at home, in a lab or on the road, it's important to stay secure in your environment. Never take more devices on the road than necessary. Always lock your devices when you leave them. Make sure to lock the door to your office or lab when you leave your things behind. Shred physical documents that you no longer need.
