As the Internet has grown we have become used to using services such as Skype, Zoom, and Gotomeeting for international calls and video conferencing. However, useful as these tools are, they will never completely replace face to face meetings which are here to stay. Such face to face meetings could be just a few miles down the road in someone’s boardroom, or they could be – and frequently are – in foreign countries, which involves international travel together with all of the international meeting security implications that suggests.
International meeting security is vital for directors and employees who are traveling to countries such as China, India, Mexico, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and many other countries, and the risks will vary enormously from one country to the next.
