New York, NY – April 30, 2019. IMG GlobalSecur, a leading international travel security consulting firm, is proud to announce a new blog post on online travel security precautions for employees. Many corporations worry about international travel security for their employees in all facets, and the new post draws attention to the cybersecurity and online security challenges faced by employees and senior executives.
“Security is a many faceted problem, and the headline risks from terrorism need to be coupled with an awareness of growing computer, online, and cybersecurity risks to employees, senior executives or VIPS, and corporate travelers in general,” explained Chris Hagon, CEO of IMG GlobalSecur. “Our blog post goes over some of the issues concerning online travel security for employees as we head into the peak summer travel season.”

CORPORATE INTERNATIONAL TRAVELERS RISK CYBERSECURITY PROBLEMS
Here is background on this release. Many corporations send their employees overseas for meetings and extended engagements. Business travelers may travel with their own personal or corporate phone as well as their own personal or corporate laptop or tablet. These connected devices – phones, tablets, and laptops – create new security risks, especially around public WiFi connections. That busy executive may not realize that she is vulnerable when she connects to an airport WiFi. Indeed, many thieves create “honeypots,” which are seemingly innocent public WiFi’s that capture logons and information from unwitting travelers. The new blog post captures some of these key points with a special focus on WiFi or online security for employees engaged in overseas travels. In addition, the firm offers a top-to-bottom international security audit for businesses and corporations that have the need and budget.
The reality, unfortunately, is that many business or corporate travelers do not realize how vulnerable they are to cybersecurity problems until they are hacked. At that point, much of the damage is done, and so the posts argues for a proactive approach to cybersecurity beginning with the use of VPNs at public WiFi hotspots.
