Whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure, or sending employees abroad, being informed about travel security can be the difference between a successful trip and a disastrous one.

 

GardaWorld’s Crisis24 portal has the travel safety information you need to stay on top of possible risks around the world. In Part 1 of this 3-part blog series, we look at how Crisis24 alerts keep you informed to help you prepare before you leave, as well as respond to changing risk levels during a trip.

An innovation in the global risk and security industry

Crisis24 is a customizable portal that features vetted news alerts about security threats and vulnerabilities from across the globe. Through these alerts, Crisis24 provides you with the reliable information you need to make better-informed decisions about travel.

 

Get the alerts you want, how you want them

After you customize Crisis24 with information about where you’re going, and what risks you want to be informed about, you’ll see alerts that are tailored to you. For example, maybe you want to know about security incidents in Egypt, where your company is expanding operations. For these alerts, you might choose to see them on your dashboard.

For other alerts, you might want them to be sent straight to your email inbox. For instance, you may want to be informed of all critical risk alerts in Thailand ahead of your upcoming vacation there. Emailed alerts can help you prepare for natural disasters, avoid unsafe areas and be aware of protests while traveling.

 

Travel safety alerts that lead you to take appropriate action

Our Crisis24 alerts are informed by on-the-ground experts around the world. They provide actionable information in an easy-to-digest format. After briefly explaining the situation, the alerts often include advice, explaining what areas are unsafe and should be avoided altogether, and might caution travelers to stay away from specific public places or roads during certain times or events.
