Result Group GmbH publishes Threat Map 2017
Seeshaupt, 16th December 2016. Result Group GmbH releases World Threat Map for the year 2017 providing a worldwide overview of cumulated security risks. The World Threat Map also indicates the ten countries with the highest kidnapping risk as well as maritime areas affected by piracy.
Exemplary for the world’s dynamic development, Result Group’s experts compared their company-own World Threat Map from 2014 with the one for 2017, drawing special attention to the continent of Africa where the overall safety situation significantly deteriorated in the last four years.
Due to Islamic terrorism, internal and interstate conflicts, but also in consequence of climatic changes the derogation of the domestic safety situation became an issue in many cases. Weak governmental assertiveness in partially high-grade corrupt systems contradict an increasingly aggravated attitude of governmental authority, leading time and again to effects, that concern companies with premises on this continent as well as traveling employees.
Therefore Africa still remains to be an ample challenge for the economy, while at the same time the continent is experiencing the fastest growth rate.
Distinctively identifiable, comparing the years 2014 to 2017, the territorial expansion of high-risk Areas becomes undeniable.
