Travel Security: What to Know Before You Head to High-Risk Locales


Here's an interesting, timely, and short piece from IBM on travel safety.

I don't know if you've ever read Stratfor's guidance on personal security, such as "Taming Chaos with a Personal Plan," but this new book, Personal Security: A Guide for International Travelers, provides a comprehensive approach to personal security and safety when travelling, or even while at home. To support your pre-trip preparations, this chapter, "Before You Go," maps out expert advice and lessons from real life cases to give you insights into basic planning questions.

So, if you company doesn't have a Travel Security Team, or even if it does, get an little extra insurance with your personal copy of Personal Security: A Guide for International Travelers.
