The Department of Homeland Security reports the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol have searched thousands of air travelers' electronics since February 2017. Many PNNL staff members travel for business and pleasure outside the country and have not been immune to electronics searches; in the last few years, several staff members have had their devices inspected at border crossings. The PNNL Travel Safety Program, recently named "Best in Class" by a National Nuclear Security Administration program, has identified best practices to reduce the risk of having the information on your electronic devices compromised. These practices are part of a comprehensive program to keep staff members and their belongings safe and secure.
