Submission + - Network security while traveling? 2

truesaer writes: I'll be spending all of next year backpacking through South America. In the past I've used internet cafes while away, but this time I plan to bring a netbook and rely primarily on wifi hotspots. I'll be facing the same issues and risks that business travelers in hotels and airports face, as well as those that millions of other backpackers, gap-year travelers, and students encounter. Since my trip is so long I'll have no choice but to access my banking, credit card, and investment accounts on public networks. Other than an effective firewall, a patched system, and the use of SSL what else should I do to protect my information? Keep in mind that many places have very poor bandwidth and latency, and that I will not have a system at home to connect through.
