Accessing the Internet at a cafe? See these tips for working securely from wireless hotspots

Just received this question as I'm about to head off to a meeting… where I will be accessing the network via our wireless network…

"How do I learn more about what to look out for when using internet cafes?"

I recommend Microsoft's article on 7 tips for working securely from wireless hotspots

"Wireless hotspots are changing the way people work. These wireless local area networks (LANs) provide high speed Internet access in public locations—as well as at home—and require nothing more than a notebook PC with a wireless card. From coffeeshops to restaurants, airports to hotel lobbies, hotspots are ubiquitous. They are the de facto connection method for travelers and remote workers to access the Internet, their e-mail, and even their corporate networks."
