With organizations increasingly operating on an international or global scale, business travel is becoming more commonplace and can be a necessary and profitable business investment.
Depending on the location and nature of the business, however, business travel comes with increased risk to employees and organizations; travelling employees may be at risk of kidnappings, terrorist attacks, natural disasters and political uprisings. According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime – Crime Trends Survey, over 60,000 kidnappings were reported globally in 2014.
As well as the increased physical risk of the traveler, consideration must be given to the financial risks to the corporation, ranging from equipment or data loss, to kidnap and ransom scenarios. The Data Loss Prevention Market is expected to grow from $0.96 billion in 2015 to $2.64 billion by 2020, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 22.3% during this period.
