The 5 questions corporations are asking about providing secure travel services to more staff
As corporations continue to expand internationally, they are sending more staff to more places than ever before – including destinations associated with elevated travel risk. And as we can tell from the kinds of inquiries we increasingly receive, those responsible for handling corporate travel and security issues often find it difficult to know when what kind of travel risk mitigation is appropriate for where, for whom, and for when.
In this blog, we take a close look at the five questions we get from clients when they consider using secure travel services for employees besides the C-suite.
Are smart hotel rooms smart enough to protect your privacy?
As executive protection professionals, it is our mission to protect our clients from all manner of threats. Of course, this concerns not least our principals’ physical safety and reputations. In an increasingly connected world, however, we must also help protect their data and their privacy.
Now that the Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming increasingly integrated all around us, it’s time to consider the consequences of the rapid proliferation of IoT devices in hotels. For executive protection professionals, the increased use of the IoT in hospitality settings will impact how we do advances and perform details. But everyone interested in secure travel would do well to consider the potential risks from these devices and how best to protect themselves and their data.
In this blog, we discuss some of the ways these devices are used to access personal information and hack hotel networks and consider some best practices to ensure our principals – and ourselves and others – are properly protected.
