Travel Risk Assessments

Travel Risk Assessments (TRA) are essential tools that help clients travel safely and effectively. They provide knowledge of the less appealing aspects of travel as well as pre-trip familiarization with the locales.

Thorough research of the security and safety features of a destination is essential for safety and general awareness before traveling.

Seasoned security professionals in the region, in addition to open-source intelligence sources, provide distinct and realistic viewpoints to the evaluation.

• Recent Events
• Significant Locations
• Infrastructure & Transportation
• Health & Immunizations
• Medical/Emergency Recommendations

Travel Security Planning

When planning a foreign trip, the first and most important factor to consider is how much risk the destination presents to travelers.

The goal of a destination threat assessment is to determine an appropriate risk level assignment. Risk levels range from 1-5 with 1 being the lowest level of risk and 5 being the highest.

ESOC’s proprietary process combines objective and subjective evaluation criteria with a numerical grading system to produce a score. The resulting score dictates which risk level category is assigned. The risk level is used to initiate proper security planning and coordination.

Regional Security Asset (Hot Contact) Management

In the event that a principal is traveling without a personal security team, a regional security asset, or “Hot Contact,” can be made available at their destination. The local contact is a valuable asset when the risk and threat profiles of the destination are low, but the principal would benefit from the assistance and local knowledge of a native language speaker.

Having a local expert in your corner can alleviate the stress, resolve issues as they arise and ensure you have a safe and productive trip.
