Globalization means doing business overseas and is a must for many businesses to ensure their survival. But how do you survive and navigate through the growing dangers and complexities of venturing beyond the United States? The most important step to take is to find out what risks you face in each region and how to mitigate against those risks. In some regions of the world, you and your employees will be in considerable physical danger. In others, corruption permeating both business and government will seriously endanger the financial viability of your enterprise. 

This presentation outlined the most severe risks currently facing American business overseas and discuss how bottom-line savvy can mitigate these risks. Topics covered included: 
  • Kidnap and Extortion 
  • Supply Chain Security 
  • Terrorism 
  • Corruption 
  • Political and Social Instability 
  • Fraud 
  • Intellectual Property Theft
