July 1, 2016 – New York, NY. IMG GlobalSecur, a leading international security consulting firm, is proud to announce a three-point summer travel security bulletin, with a particular emphasis on the upcoming Olympics in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. With the world increasingly close due to the Internet and international travel, yet threatened by everything from the Zika virus to terrorism, the post is a short, first step to help employers begin to think through the conflicting demands of global travel.
“The Olympics is a microcosm of the forces of globalization,” explained Chris Hagon, CEO of IMG GlobalSecur. “On the one hand, everyone is excited about this global event, yet, on the other hand, there are increasing worries about negative events. Our post, as well as our blog in general, is meant to help employers think thru this New World Order.”

Beyond the Rio Olympics: Other Upcoming Events and International Travel Security
Besides the Olympics, the post touches on the upcoming US Presidential Election, and the uncertainty that the Trump candidacy may cause for everything from economics to international travel and relations. Security concerns are also paramount, as both candidates are uniquely unpopular. The third event covered in the post is the UEFA Euro 2016 Championship, a soccer competition among the top 24 national soccer teams in Europe. For companies who send employees abroad, this type of event highlights the fuzzy boundary between where business travel ends and pleasure travel begins as an employee or senior executive might be in Europe, “on business,” and yet visit this type of event. Security risks, after all, respect no boundaries. Those interested in a detailed consultation on their company’s security risks with respect to international travel are encouraged to read the post, and reach out to one of the international travel security experts at IMG GlobalSecur for a consultation.
