Where are the Danger Zones? Besides Libya, That Is…

The recent violent demonstrations against American diplomatic facilities throughout the Muslim world, coupled with the attack on the American mission in Benghazi, Libya showcases one of hundreds of security threats that your globe-trotting employees may be facing – political uprising. For sound reasons, the news coverage on Libya has been extensive, especially in the United States. But for those of us charged with keeping our “own” safe, it begs many questions: What affect did this attack have on your employees or operations? Was this threat even on your radar screen?

Evaluating risks and threats to globe-trotting employees can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. During a webinar on Thursday, September 27, we’ll examine the process of analyzing and responding to security threat information related to terrorism, civil unrest, petty crime, and other events.

This webinar is part of a new thought leadership series where practitioners and experts will take a deep dive into some of the more compelling issues surrounding each of the eight steps to implement a successful travel risk management program. Understanding and implementing Dr. Lisbeth Claus’ 8-Step Duty of Care model will help you fulfill your Duty of Care. Dr. Claus, a professor of global human resources at Willamette University, authored the Duty of Care and Travel Risk Management Global Benchmarking Study.

In the first of the “Start to Finish: 8 Essential Steps for Duty of Care” series “Where are the Danger Zones?” attendees will take away five Quick Wins that they can adopt and implement.

Daniel Pocus, Director of U.S. Security for PricewaterhouseCoopers; and Tim Daniel, Group Executive Vice President at International SOS and I will detail the criteria used by intelligence analysts in government and private sectors to evaluate threats and make decisions regarding dissemination of threat information.

I hope you can join us.
