Global Political and Travel Security Risks 2012: Looking Ahead


The year 2011 was extremely volatile, with manmade and natural disasters from the Japan earthquake to the Arab Spring. What’s ahead for 2012 and where are the hot spots?

We’ll answer these questions and more during Global Political and Travel Security Risks 2012: Looking Ahead, a webinar at 1 p.m. EST on Wednesday, Jan. 18. I’ll be joined by colleagues at Control Risks, Iain Donald, Vice President and Director, Global Risk Analysis, Americas; and Nicholas Watson Head of Americas Desk, Global Risk Analysis.

We’ll take a look at the top countries respondents to the Duty of Care and Travel Risk Management Global Benchmarking Study perceived as most dangerous. In that analysis, we’ll distill myth from reality, taking a look at what travelers and expatriates face in these locations.

In the Global Benchmarking Study, Mexico ranks at the top of the list of countries perceived as most dangerous by respondents. The Top 5 are rounded out by Nigeria, Afghanistan, India and Pakistan. The Washington Post recently took a look at travel in Mexico and you can read the story here.

A comprehensive discussion of the global risk panorama will provide analysis of the most important political and security risks in the year ahead, including best practices in travel risk management which employers can implement to help safeguard their personnel.

Anyone who manages or is responsible for employees overseas will benefit from this session, including those in the areas of security, medical, business continuity, risk management, travel and legal.

We hope you can join us.
