We work with one of the largest higher education institutions in the United Kingdom to risk assess and provide intelligence support to keep faculty and research students safe on trips overseas. We identify potentially higher risk trips in coordination with individual faculties and departments, and identify potential threats and risks to travel based on the specific work or research being undertaken and the proposed trip itineraries. This provides a ‘second layer of defence’ to the university to reduce the risk of everything from low level crime, to kidnap, to state detention or arrest.
Outcomes for the client
- Additional peace of mind to senior leadership that faculty and students are being protected
- Improved itineraries to keep travellers safe and secure
- Facilitation of higher risk trips which have development or research value
