Carrying an Encrypted Device Across International Borders

From Zasio:

Legal mandates differ when it comes to allowing entry into a jurisdiction with an encrypted device, which may render security protocols implemented to safeguard information an unworkable solution. This may result in prohibition of entry, decryption of the device and copying it, or even seizure of the device. Not only will you be compromising sensitive and confidential information, but also potentially in violation of contractual obligations or laws governing unauthorized disclosure. At the very least, decrypting the device will make it more susceptible to theft and data loss.

Is this something you check before traveling with encrypted data on a laptop or other device used for work?
