Result Group GmbH publishes World Threat Map 2016
Seeshaupt, 19th January 2016. As one of the world’s leading risk and crisis management consultancies Result Group GmbH releases the World Threat Map this year, too. With the World Threat Map 2016 companies, travelers and expatriates have a global overview at hand, which provides country-specific information about threats and security risks worldwide. The Map also indicates the ten countries with the highest kidnapping risk as well as areas threatened by piracy.
In many areas crisis situations have newly flared up, which might have repercussions on business activities of German companies. Globally speaking, there is a possibility this year that internal conflicts will worsen or erupt in some states due to low commodity prices and therefore declining state revenues. Venezuela or Saudi-Arabia can be listed as examples. Furthermore, an increasing inequitable distribution of wealth as well as growing populations will lead to a rise in crime rates in many countries, resulting in possible risks for expatriates and business travelers in particular.
Conflicts, caused by supporters of a radical Islamic order of society, dominate large parts of Northern Africa and the Middle East. As a consequence, the security situations in some countries bordering conflict hot-spots such as Egypt and Chad have significantly worsened. At the same time a religious conflict between Sunni and Shiites increasingly emerges given a covert dispute between Iran and Saudi-Arabia, which will be of significance for all trouble spots in the Arab world.
Companies conducting business in these countries need to take adequate/sufficient security precautions to react properly to existing threat Levels.
Result Group GmbH creates a secure environment for business activities and employees abroad providing integrated and preventive concepts for risk reduction and reactive crisis management. A subscription to a country information system gives you detailed information on country-specific risks and up-to-date news regarding security relevant issues. The World Threat Map 2016 is also available for download on our website www.result-group.com.
