Recently we teamed up with URMIA to give international travel risk professionals an inside look at what a well-prepared study abroad candidate looks like. During this webinar, our Chief Security Officer, Jim Hutton, drew from his 30+ years in security and risk management to provide insights on how to properly align policies, procedures and people to create a safe and successful study abroad experience.
Jim discusses important topics such as which functions and roles should oversee international travel, how to educate travelers on health and safety precautions, techniques for enforcing compliance and more. Jim also presents an actionable approach for testing crisis response plans and creating an effective travel risk management strategy that protects students—and their institutions—from the risks associated with study abroad travel. The webinar concludes with a thought-provoking Q+A to help participants gain further understanding on topics discussed during the presentation.
