Going to the Olympics?

Are you or one of your organization's employees planning to attend the Olympics in Beijing this August?  If so, are there any precautions you are taking (or recommending for your staff to take) when bringing computers, PDAs, or other electronics potentially containing intellectual property on a trip to China?  I'm not suggesting that China is a dangerous place (after all, nearly anywhere on the planet you can find trouble) but there has been a lot of talk recently about cybersecurity issues in China.

So we are curious, what are you doing to protect your organization against potential theft, or even worse - the potential addition of "value added features" to your computers and devices while you are not looking?  Send us your ideas, concerns, and comments and we'll add the best ones to this diary.  You can also use the "comment" feature below to directly add your thoughts.
