Identity theft
Staying safe is not something that the user should stop using a certain website or a tool for staying safe and secure. The web is a bad place as of now in terms like you never who is spying on your online activites. It is therefore advisable to stay safe from these hacking attempts and to secure your IP with PureVPN that provides encrypted online connection and also offers 5 plus multi logins so that is a plus.

Re: 2016
I totally agree with you getting exposed to cyber threats is very common these days and the best thing we can do is to go anonymous over the internet on all the devices, the best tool is a VPN service to safeguard your privacy and security and it also helps us to bypass all the geo-restrictions and gives us the power to access all the blocked websites from anywhere in the world.

Re: Definitely beware ATMs
I wonder if anyone is selling RFID-security wallets that read the cards in them and send the data 'home'?

Yep
This is precisely my thinking and strategy whenever I attend an event at MIT.  I'm sure as shootin' not connecting to the network of the university with some of the brightest hacking minds in the world.

Actually, I don't ever connect to the network at any conference I go to.  It's just best practice -- and having 4G helps.

Actually the article is informative enough! As for the first aid for your protection, it is vpn, which can help you to enhance your security and stay private when it is necessary for you. Some people say that it doesn't protect your system, but to be exact it is the only service which can try to do it and do it well. As for me, I prefer expressvpn  https://www.bestvpnrating.com/service/expressvpn the cost is rather high, but at the same time the result satisfies me.

As for the suggestion not to pay vie the net, nowadays it is impossible as it is the most convenient and the fastest way as you can avoid a lot of problems concerning queues.

On the whole, for staying secure you should just follow all the tips, as there is no flexible decision yet.

Stay Safe
This reminds of when I was training rookies at the State prison where I worked as an Officer for 10 years. One asked how he could minimize the risk of being attacked by an inmate or inmates.  He wasn't too pleased when I replied, "Simple. Don't show up for work."

They got the picture.

Great post.

Re: General Consensus
Anytime I am at a security conference (or any IT conference for that matter), two features I turn off are wifi and bluetooth. I know too much, have done too much, and I am paranoid to the nth degree.

General Consensus
From most of the pen testers and white hatters that I have spoken to in the past they recommend not connecting as much as possible while at blackhat.

The 10 Most Impactful Types of Vulnerabilities for Enterprises Today
Managing system vulnerabilities is one of the old est - and most frustrating - security challenges that enterprise defenders face. Every software application and hardware device ships with intrinsic flaws - flaws that, if critical enough, attackers can exploit from anywhere in the world. It's crucial that defenders take stock of what areas of the tech stack have the most emerging, and critical, vulnerabilities they must manage. It's not just zero day vulnerabilities. Consider that CISA's Known Exploited Vulnerabilities (KEV) catalog lists vulnerabilitlies in widely used applications that are "actively exploited," and most of them are flaws that were discovered several years ago and have been fixed. There are also emerging vulnerabilities in 5G networks, cloud infrastructure, Edge applications, and firmwares to consider.
