    Are they carrying linux machines or windows machines with them?

    If they are linux machines, they could us an encrypted archive (dmcrypt
    + luks) and access it over sftp - or even smb filesharing.

    If they are windows machines, format, install linux, and use above
    method.

    Cheers,

    Chris
