What world do these people live in? Apparently, they have never worked an actual field assignment or they would understand that their absurd directive is an impossible demand.

Free Wi-Fi… A Bomb Waiting To Explode

wifi_bmbProtecting a Consumers Non Public Personal Information When Using “Free Public Wi-Fi”

Guest Editorial

In our computer tech business environment, it is not uncommon to see a field agent pull their recovery vehicle into a business parking lot and use the “FREE WI-FI” to perform actions on their laptop, notebook or smart phone.
