July 30, 2016 – New York, NY. IMG GlobalSecur, a leading international security consulting firm, is proud to announce an important ‘think piece’ on travel risk assessment and travel security for employees and executives. The company’s blog aims to help HR managers and others who plan and manage corporate international travel programs to think through security in this new era.
“Having a conceptual framework is key to evaluating security risks when it comes to travel risk assessment and travel risk management issues,” explained Chris Hagon, CEO of IMG GlobalSecur. “Our ‘think piece’ focuses mainly on international travel risk assessment, but the risk assessment is a key piece of the travel risk management process.”
Persons interested in reading the blog post should visit our page on travel risk assessment. On the blog, they can also find information about travel security issues, including medical travel security, for employee travel security and executives. Interest parties are strongly advised, however, that they should reach out to trained professionals to conduct a travel risk assessment as part of a larger travel risk management program.
International Travel Risk Assessment: The Known, the Unknown, and the Unknowable
In any human endeavor based on reason, such as scientific knowledge, or the assessment of risks, a conceptual framework is necessary to evaluate factual data. One cannot, for example, understand the motion of objects in a systematic way without recourse to either the conceptual framework of Sir Isaac Newton or Albert Einstein. Similarly, with respect to travel risk assessment, one must have a conceptual framework. In this article, the travel security experts at IMG GlobalSecur identify the known, the unknown, and the unknowable as a three-part way to think about travel security risk assessment and travel security risk management. Indeed, the conceptual framework helps everyone involved in the process to ‘think things through’ so as to attempt to foresee any type of potential security risks; admittedly, this is a worthwhile yet difficult task. Obviously, a short blog post is no substitute for an in-depth security audit, but it is still a useful way to help people think about security risks that they may confront for themselves, their employees, and their senior executives.
