TRAVEL SECURITY MANAGEMENT
Travel risk management is a component of any organization's travel-related activities and should include interaction with stakeholders. There are many reasons people travel for their organization. Traveling has increasingly become a common feature of workers. As a result, organizations must fulfill their duty of assistance, in multiple jurisdictions and in different parts of the world.
Travelers, both international and domestic, may be faced with unfamiliar situations and environments that may have different risk profiles from those of their normal location. Road accidents, epidemics, natural disasters, as well as conflicts, crime (including cyber and information), cyber threats, terrorism and socially motivated political instability, can threaten safety, (including information security) and health (including mental health) of travelers, and can harm influencing the outcome of their travel goals.
Managing travel risks in a country where the organization does not have a local base requires more comprehensive controls than in places where risk profiles are well known and treatments have already been established. Timeliness and accuracy of intelligence, analysis and advice, including travel alerts, are increasingly important in influencing travel decisions.
This course provides organizations with a means of dealing with and knowing how to make the best travel decisions, based on the organization's ability to deal with travel risk, using internal resources or with external assistance. Not all travel requires the same level of rigor in risk assessment and management. With this course we will provide a comprehensive set of risk management options that an organization can consider, and apply them with the right motivation and proportion to risk exposure.
