Threats to multinational corporations come in two forms: natural and man-made. This book illustrates the types of risks that confront corporations when working outside of North America. It provides key tools and understanding that are required to do business in a safe and secure manner, no matter the level of risk. It walks through a logical framework for safety and security program development from Day One. Using real-world case studies and examples, the book is a useful reference to security managers, security consultants, contractors, frequent global business travelers, and for those who are presently or soon-to-be assigned in overseas positions.
