    NEIL CAVUTO, HOST: In an age where safeguarding your information is very important — actually, the most important thing — my next guest is here to offer a little bit of help. You might know him. The New York Mets' (search) G.M., Omar Minaya, spends most of his time on the road, knows how easily information can get lost or, even worse, leaked. He joins me now with ways to keep your work safe.

    Good to have you.


    CAVUTO: Is this problem for you, too?

    MINAYA: Yes, I think it's a problem for all travelers, especially if you travel as much in the airport and trains, just the people wanting to know what kind of work you do and information that you may have in your laptop computer (search).

    CAVUTO: All right, the laptop is the big thing. How do you safeguard that?

    MINAYA: Well, the laptop, I use the 3M privacy filter (search) that's out there.

    And this filter, pretty much, I can only look at it myself and right in front of me. For those people that have wandering eyes, you can stop those wandering eyes.

    And then, a lot of times, myself, I kind of do not like to talk about what field I'm in, even though, when you are in the sports management field, people know that you...

    CAVUTO: Well, everyone knows you. I mean, in the New York, Connecticut, New Jersey area, you're pretty familiar. So, if I get on a JetBlue flight with you, I'm going to look at what you are doing.

    MINAYA: Yes. That's true. If you already know, ask questions about baseball...

    CAVUTO: You would not even talk to me on a flight, would you?

    MINAYA: Would I talk to you? I try to be friendly. I try to be friendly to people.


    MINAYA: And I try not to be rude. There's no doubt.

    CAVUTO: But, all right, now, I have heard the other laptops with the fingerprint technology and all of that.

    MINAYA: Yes.

    CAVUTO: But is there anything else you can do?

    MINAYA: Well, there's definitely things you can do for business travel.

    If you travel a lot, I think you have to always be savvy about where you are traveling, as far as sort of who is in front of you, who is behind you, as far as information, talking on the cell phones. Don't talk too loud.

    CAVUTO: Everyone talks loud on a cell phone. I feel like telling people, you don't have to. It's not necessary.

    But they do. Why?

    MINAYA: Well, a lot of it depends on what kind of quality cell phone you have.

    CAVUTO: Yes.

    MINAYA: But I think, those kind of areas, you be careful when you travel. Those are the tips that I would give.

    CAVUTO: I have heard people — seriously — on some planes, doing what sound like multimillion-dollar deals on airplane and letting the whole cabin know what they're doing. Obviously, you don't do that.

    MINAYA: Especially if you have a deep voice. And I think I have a deep voice. So, I have to be careful myself.

    But those things, you have to be careful. Myself, I try to be aware of my surroundings.

    CAVUTO: Yes.

    Let's talk a little bit about the Mets this year. They're not doing great. They were doing great. I know they're playing roughly .500 ball. They're seven games out.

    MINAYA: Close to .500 ball, yes.

    CAVUTO: What happened? A couple of weeks ago, you were a couple of games...

    MINAYA: Well, we had a bad road trip.

    CAVUTO: Right. Right.

    MINAYA: We had a bad road trip.

    And the fact is that, you know, with this road trip that we had — we've been on the road now for a while. We are going to be going to Philadelphia. We are going to be going to Yankee Stadium. But we have, you know, we have got a young team. And, like, we have a young nucleus.

    And young teams are going to be hot and cold.

    CAVUTO: Yes.

    MINAYA: But I think I like the future of where we're going. And I think our fans like the future.
