Recent U.S. embassy closures are sparking conversations about international travel safety. How safe is it out there?

Despite these latest developments, there are six basic principles of security that, when applied sensibly, help keep people safe in any environment. These six principles, developed  by travel security experts at International SOS and Control Risks, will be discussed and explored using real life traveler experiences and lessons learned, as well as crisis management team exercises and mitigation strategies that work.

The webinar will be led by two seasoned International SOS travel experts who will use personal anecdotes in a discussion of best practices gained through years of experience:

  • Pablo Weisz, Regional Security Manager, International SOS and Control Risks
  • John Rendeiro, Vice President, Global Security and Intelligence, International SOS (Former Assistant Director, International Programs of the Diplomatic Security Service, U.S. Department of State)

Who Should Attend:

This webinar workshop will leave attendees who oversee the safety and security of employees traveling or living abroad with key learning principles they can reinforce within their organizations. This session will also empower those travelers, expatriates, students and others to mitigate their own personal safety.

Anyone who manages or is responsible for employees overseas will benefit from this webinar, including those in the areas of medical, security, human resources, business continuity, risk management, travel, HSE and legal as well as reporters who cover these areas.
