September 28, 2019 – New York, NY. IMG GlobalSecur, leading international travel security consulting experts is proud to announce a new post on hiring corporate event security consultants. Many security agencies exist that provide on-the-ground logistics, argues the post, but few such agencies can provide a 360 degree audit of vulnerabilities. This is even more true when the venue shifts from the United States to somewhere overseas; the need is thus to find a truly international corporate meeting event security expert and then engage him or her for a top-to-bottom security assessment prior to the meeting or event.
“The saying is that ‘what can go wrong, will go wrong,’ and that truism comes into play for international corporate meetings,” explained Chris Hagon, CEO of IMG GlobalSecur. “Our new post explains some of the to-dos and pitfalls of selecting an international corporate meeting event security expert.”

Persons more interested in cybersecurity and technical issues are also encouraged to read the newly updated page on technical surveillance countermeasures at https://www.theimg.com/international-meeting-conference-and-event-security/. As is always true, no two events are exactly alike and the best next step is to reach out to one of the security experts at IMG Globalsecur for a consultation. A security audit may be in order and that audit will highlight strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats for any corporate meeting whether in the United States or overseas.
Moreover, the post advocates that digitally savvy persons check out the FoneTrac travel safety app. The app connects the business traveler to a back-end service (GlobalSecur) which offers real-time, and real-person assistance to travelers. With reach across the globe, the travel security app is an ideal complement to any plans to travel abroad, whether for business or pleasure.
INTERNATIONAL MEETING SECURITY EXPERTS: A 360 DEGREE APPROACH
Here is background on this release. Hosting a corporate meeting in the United States is difficult enough. There are just the logistics of finding a venue, selecting a food or catering company, and getting the technical experts together for such basics as high speed Internet access. Then there are increasing security concerns, both real and digital. The growth in cyberespionage by competitors and foreign governments is an increasing concern. All of this is complicated should a corporate meeting be held overseas. Holding a corporate meeting in New York City is one thing; holding it in Riyadh, Mexico City, or Beijing is quite another. New problems arise and old ones are mitigated. For these reasons, the post advocates engaging a true international meeting security expert and having him conduct a 360 degree security audit prior to the meeting. Security consulting, in summary, should be an early step in the planning process. The reason for this is that, generally speaking, what can go wrong, will go wrong.
