IT Security Planet is running a Twitter poll to see how people plan to protect themselves from the onslaught of attacks during what is probably the second most cyberrisky conference of the year (first is DefCon).

Every year, we hear of stories where attendees get calls from their credit card companies to confirm charges on their cards, their phones being controlled by bots, and fake cellular towers being setup.

We're interested to hear from the attendees how they plan to protect themselves from these and other risks they face by simply being in the right place at the wrong time.

Vote in the poll (you can do that here in this post if you wish) to select one of the 4 options there If you have an addition to make to the list, feel free to reply to the tweet and let us know what you plan to do to protect yourself.
