  • Author draws from more than 3 decades of experience in intelligence and security
  • Encourages readers to consider the threats specific to the region they are headed then make their assessment from there and plan accordingly
  • Gives workers, mid-level employees and managers a way to develop the intuitive sixth-sense needed to make fast, smart judgements on what to do and how to behave when they travel to, or live and work in high-risk environments
  • Intended as a blueprint for corporations that need to develop in-house intelligence reporting about their global operations


Uniting broad, time-tested security principles and the author’s 35-plus years of experience with international security, intelligence, and foreign affairs, Understanding Personal Security: A Guide for Business Travelers offers a detailed yet practical framework on which to develop personal security awareness and training programs. As a critical resource for any travelers who may need to make fast, smart judgements in high-risk environments, this book helps readers analyze threats, threat actors, and the common adversarial characteristics, as well as the function of risk as a differentiating principle. This versatile text blends abstract organizing principles with street honed instincts, becoming equally valuable to security managers with previous experience and those corporate or non-profit organizations with employees in developing nations.
