Travel Security


Through a joint venture, Control Risks and International SOS combine our experience, staff and infrastructure to provide world-class security support and services to keep your international travellers and expatriates safe - anywhere, anytime.
We provide organisations with integrated risk management plans, strategies and responses to protect their employees and help their business function more efficiently. We offer a programme with three levels of service:
Comprehensive Membership

This is our most extensive service package bringing together routine and emergency travel security support together with medical assistance from International SOS. More

Travel Security Management Service

Our enhanced subscription product provides dedicated support to your security and risk management teams, offering a range of assistance and information services tailored to you to better support your personnel and managers. More

Security Membership

This essential level of service provides information, advice and assistance 24 hours a day. It can also give you the safety net of emergency evacuation. More

Our security information, analysis and support

Our 24/7 regional analysis teams ensure timely reporting on security threats and travel disruption anywhere in the world. We monitor and analyse shifting political and social situations, as well as natural disasters, to provide security advice for travellers, including country and city risk ratings and daily updates on incidents and developments.
Whether there is a requirement for pre-travel advice, activating local security support or the provision of emergency assistance, this specialist team is available 365 days a year.
Our infrastructure, a unique global footprint

The alliance has a unique footprint of resources. Our security centres are staffed by experienced consultants 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, who provide urgent and non-critical advice to travellers anytime, anywhere, serving as a seamless extension of an in-house travel and security management department. Our regional teams are on standby day and night to deploy in the support of evacuation and other assistance operations.
Our capabilities are reinforced and supported by the global network of International SOS’ and Control Risks’ 78 worldwide offices and 350 remote sites. This includes the embedded security and medical resources at International SOS’ 27 Assistance Centres and four regional aviation units that can support small to large-scale security evacuations, and Control Risks’ security consultants on the ground in over 150 countries at any given time.
Our technology

Our tracking system consolidates travel data from multiple sources into one place to give you a global view of where your travellers are and their scheduled trips, as well as a means for communicating with them by phone, email or SMS. With features that assist you to communicate your corporate travel policy, this is an essential risk management tool.
