Country Risk Rating

What sources do you use for arriving at a risk rating for your executives that are traveling interannually with company assets?

 

I am looking for aspects such as how much surveillance is done by local country. What is the know terrorist threat, and cyber/organized crime for a given area?   We are trying to come up with risk ratings for staff and what the likely hood that confidential information might be intercepted as they travel.    I welcome feedback and suggestions.   We have used World Aware for looking at physical security but feel some lacking when it comes to other areas.

@estaats If you were part of a intelligence organisation, this information would be well known to you.  Having worked within such an organisation, you need to apply some interpretation i.e. put two and two together with the available information which is available in the public, if you not within such an organisation.

Hope this helps?

 

I am sure there are other sources of information, but if you are outside the intelligence community, you just look for the indications and think laterally.

This is just a gentle reminder to double-check spelling before you hit "Post". It appears that your executives are travelling through time, so you're going to need past, present, and future risk reports.

Thanks for the reminder that some focus on grammar more than content; I tend to forget that in chats and informal settings but it is good to remember that others do not.

Havn't you heard?  Teleportation and travelling back and forth in time has been proven in 2017, with Quantum Physics and Entanglement.  Much to the chagrin of Einstein !!  Smiley Happy
