Bill, an IT supervisor for 5 years at Acme Roadrunner Data (ARD) (not a real company) is returning with his work laptop from a month long vacation with his wife in Asia. They couple visited Thailand, Vietnam, China, and South Korea. To stretch 15 days of accrued vacation into the month that he needed, Bill taking advantage of the time difference and ARD’s telecommuting policies, would log on and do his work remotely knowing that he could get a full day’s work done in 3-4 hours. He used local hotel and coffee shop Wi-Fi and ARD’s VPN. With work finished he would join his wife sightseeing. Upon his return to the USA Bill is stopped in customs. They ask to see his laptop which Bill hands over reluctantly. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) turns it on and asks Bill for his password. Bill because of his supervisor role has a master password that gives him access to almost all the systems that ARD has. He uses this same password for the laptop which contains a master copy of the ARD’s proprietary software and user data which is encrypted with the same password.
Bill believes that he will be fired if he gives CBP access to such sensitive company information and refuses. Protesting his rights as an American citizen he asks why they want access to his laptop. CBP says that they are cracking down on the importation of child pornography and searching people coming from SE Asia where the problem is rampant. They go on to say that unless they are given access Bill and his wife will be detained in a CBP holding facility. Complicating matters is that fact that Bill and his wife took some risqué photos together with their digital SLR. Having run out of room on their SD card and not trusting such photos to the cloud, Bill stored them temporarily on his laptop until he could get home. Bill uses his one phone call to call the ARD Legal Department. After several days in detention with an ARD corporate lawyer present Bill gives up his password to CBP. After thoroughly examining the laptop and its files, including the encrypted ones the laptop is returned by CBP to Bill and he and his wife are released.
