Half of security pros would rather walk barefoot in a public restroom than use public Wi-Fi
A new Lastline survey looks at the security habits and views of infosec professionals. The report shows not only that security experts avoid connecting to public Wi-Fi networks because these are hard to secure, but also that 45% of respondents would even choose entering a public restroom barefoot over using public Wi-Fi.
The vast majority of respondents consider security a bigger threat to US national security than border security. Other interesting findings include the fact that almost 70% of infosec pros cover the webcam of their laptop to avoid being spied on, and that 44% activate two-factor authentication on all of their devices.
