Global Political and Travel Security Risks 2014: Looking Ahead
Tuesday, Jan. 28, 2014, 1 - 2 p.m. Eastern

Last year was a busy one when it came to global events. There were security issues in Ukraine, Bangladesh and South Sudan, as well as attacks at the Westgate Mall in Kenya, during the Boston Marathon, and, most recently, in Russia as the Winter Games approach. The New Year has not started quietly, with continued security threats in the Central African Republic, tensions between Japan and China, as well as other risks. The year 2014 looks to be just as complex as 2013.

Security specialists will highlight the global political and travel security risks these issues will present for internationally-minded organizations and look at what may lie ahead in 2014. We will share best practices to help organizations be as resilient as possible during turbulent times and to assist senior security executives as they provide travelers with advice on remaining safe and secure wherever they go.

Our expert panel will look at recent headlines, as well as current and historic data and tie it all together for attendees.

  • Pablo Weisz, Regional Security Manager, Americas, International SOS and Control Risks
