Actions and Detail Panel
Business Travel Risk Awareness
Wed 10 May 2017, 09:30 – 13:00 BST
About the Workshop:
The global reach of modern business requires company directors and executives to increasingly present themselves overseas in order to develop new business and maintain existing operations. As seasoned travellers we appreciate the political landscape overseas is continually evolving, and with this we are presented with new potential threats in what may have been familiar environments. It is therefore critical for the business traveller to understand where these potential risks come from but more importantly how to identify and reduce exposure to us and the orgainsations we represent.
The workshop aims to provide an insight into how we are vulnerable to unknown risks when we travel and how they are perpetrated. We will look at how we can employ simple practices to ensure that we are not exposing both ourselves or critical business information to current and potential risks. The workshop will focus on how we can prepare ourselves prior to travelling, enabling established practices whilst conducting travel and upon return what actions should be taken to ensure we are continually maintaining our critical data. Some of the topics include:
- Personal Security
- Risk locations and trends
- Information Security
- Commercial, Industrial and State Sponsored Espionage
- Social Engineering
Who Would Benefit from Attending: The workshop is tailored towards business executives who are required to travel and conduct business overseas. It would also benefit those within an organisation who are responsible for deploying staff overseas and need to understand how they could be exposed to risks.
