In a recent meeting about travel security for employees, VIPs, and executives, a business executive asked a question. “How can we, as a company, determine what is a credible threat?” It was a great opening to a larger conversation about risks and security vulnerabilities, and the discussion that ensued had less to do with threats and more to do with expertise.
Simply put, as it was explained in that meeting, any business will face its own fair share of risks. Some companies might have greater risks that come from internal threats or vulnerabilities while others may be challenged with mitigating external concerns. International businesses may face additional risks that come with overseas locations and employee travel. Those factors can add an additional, more unpredictable layer onto existing security vulnerabilities. Risks can be as high profile as a terrorist incident and as low profile as a key employee getting the flu in a third world country. Here at IMG GlobalSecur, our employee travel security services extend to medical emergencies. Whether it’s high or low profile, what matters to you and your employees is their 24/7, 360 degrees international travel security for employees. Our travel security experts can help.
QUALITY OF ASSESSMENT OF INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL RISKS
The key to understanding risk comes from the quality of its assessment. Many businesses are equipped to manage lower levels of risks, implementing internal controls or using physical security measures as part of their operations. Assessing and understanding more serious threats, however, many require additional expertise. Most businesspeople are not well-versed in evaluating risks associated with terrorism, for example, or the impact that overseas civil disobedience could have on international travelers or facilities.

There may be times when companies have to make business decisions surrounding identified risks. Having guidance throughout the threat assessment process, using international security experts, helps companies make more informed choices about the credibility of certain threats and ultimately, the safety of its employees.
