International Security: Large or Small, Overseas Events Must Have Security Awareness

Unfortunately, even nowadays, corporations often do not have a security awareness about their overseas events and meetings. Especially in an international context, meetings can bring in many senior employees and executives to a single location, thereby making an attractive target for those who seek to perform malfeasance against an organization. IMG GlobalSecur provides expert consultants who can assess potential risks in advance, and help an organization to realize that overseas meeting risk assessment is not limited to high-profile terrorism problems. Security risks can be anything ranging from technical corporate espionage to employees contracting the latest virus or epidemic to strike a foreign venue. Natural events, and political unrest, can also be security threats. The point is to have an international event security assessment bring a fresh perspective and a deep level of experience to the process. Indeed, IMG GlobalSecur has two sister offerings, GlobalSecur ( offering threat and travel security assistance for employees and FoneTrac ( an innovative travel safety app for employees overseas, that complement its experts in event security.
