The ban on laptops in airline cabins could be expanded to all U.S. bound flights from Europe.
Here's what you can do to make your next business trip less of a nuisance:
Put your laptop in a hard-shell case and bury it in the middle of your suitcase.
Upgrade your passwords
Data searches are becoming more common and checked luggage is very exposed to unknown screenings.
Get a TSA-approved lock to prevent theft
Travelers on U.S. flights are not allowed to use just any lock on their luggage anymore.
Protect your data
Get a small hard drive to keep in your carry-on.
Insure your devices
Make sure that your policy covers damage in transit or by the airline.
Alert bosses and clients that you'll be offline
Set up an out-of-office email.
