Hot Spots: The Security and Political Outlook for Business Travelers in 2013


Where will political unrest continue in 2013? What could happen in Venezuela as the political landscape changes? What about China, where new leadership takes over?

In what has become an annual tradition at International SOS and Control Risks, we’ll take a look on Jan. 29 at key political and travel security risks emerging over the course of the coming year which are likely to shape the environment for organizations operating internationally. This complimentary webinar will investigate a diverse range of issues:

  • Global terrorism;
  • Potential for political upheaval in the Eurozone;
  • Narco-violence in Mexico;
  • Outlook for Venezuela in a post-Chavez era;
  • China’s prospects under its new leadership.

We will highlight the challenges these issues are bound to toss up for international businesses and the professionals charged with safeguarding their assets. We’ll also take a look at the Top 10 incident countries according to our reports and address how organizations can protect their travelers from the most common threats we see in those locations.

I’ll be joined by Alex Puig, Regional Security Director, Americas, International SOS and Control Risks (view bio); Jonathan Wood, Associate Director, Global Risk Analysis, Control Risks (view bio). John Rendeiro, Vice President, Global Security and Intelligence, International SOS (view bio) will moderate.

Global Political and Travel Security Risks 2013: Looking Ahead is set for 1 p.m. on Tuesday. Follow this link to register to attend this webinar or If you are unable to attend, you can request a request a recording. I hope to you’ll join us.
