Demand for travel security advice increases 800%

NGO travel

New figures reveal that the demand for travel security advice has grown by nearly 30 per cent in the last two years and increased by 800 per cent in the last decade.

The insight from International SOS and Control Risks shows that on average, more than 100 business travellers and international assignees per day have been given security advice in the past year.

International SOS and Control Risks are celebrating the 10th anniversary of their strategic alliance, which has seen the companies handle more than 5.3 million pre-travel advisories and more than 100,000 situation development/crisis alerts.

David Johnson, CEO of security services at International SOS, said: “Globalisation and an increasing emphasis on duty of care has brought the necessity of robust security risk management programmes to the forefront of the corporate agenda, and business leaders have become increasingly aware that this is an essential aspect of business resilience.”
