Remember those commercials for excessive cell phone roaming coverage? The ones with clever skits highlighting the end user having no idea that their phone had crossed an invisible border and switched from primary to roaming coverage? Immediately incurring increased costs for calling, texting and data usage that only become visible when you receive your monthly bill?
Unfortunately, there is a security version of the roaming scenario where your security protection decreases without warning as your internet connection changes from fixed to mobile to Wi-Fi networks. Or you use the same service across different devices. You may be protected when access your financial institution from a laptop, mobile phone, tablet or desktop computer but not from your point of sale system. Same query different security.
