  19. BORDER SEARCHES OF LAPTOPS & ELECTRONIC DEVICES • The U.S. Government’s interest in preventing the entry of unwanted persons and effects is at its zenith at the int’l border. Thus, routine searches and seizures at the border do not require probable cause or a warrant. U.S. v. Flores Montano, 541 U.S. 149, 152-53 (2004) • Searches of int’l passengers at U.S. airports are considered border searches, and thus generally are reasonable, because they occur at the functional equivalent of a border. U.S. v. Arnold, 533 F.3d 1003, 1006 (9th Cir. 2008). • Reasonable suspicion is not needed for customs officials to search a laptop computer or other personal electronic storage devices at the border. Arnold, 533 F.3d at 1008.

BEST PRACTICES FOR ACADEMICS DO NOT • Travel with current research on laptop • Continue to use a laptop that begins to run slowly or acts strangely after taking it overseas • Speak about or comment on the status of research and development being conducted by others at UNM Information about failures in research can be as valuable as successes

  24. ADDITIONAL TIPS FOR CLEARED PERSONNELUse your gut instincts • Rule of 3 – If you see someone 3 times you are possibly being followed. • Hotel Room Surveillance – if you think your hotel room is under surveillance, do not let the hotel know that you suspect something. Make up an excuse and ask for a different room. • Prior to travel, FBI can check if your hotel is known for surveillance or segregates certain visitors to the same floor, etc. • Business Card – If someone approaches you to collaborate on research or to speak at a future conference, ask for a business card and give it to your FSO at your travel de-brief.

  25. If it sounds too good to be true…. • Recruitment is active • Espionage • Human trafficking • Drug trafficking • Throw money at young, poor, eager, open minded visitors immersed in their culture • Starts out innocently: Under the table English class Glenn Shriver: http://www.washingtonian.com/articles/people/chinas-mole-in-training/ http://vimeo.com/58565199
