Incident Response Workshop by International SOS

The world we live in today is full of uncertainties with political instability, fear of terrorism, outbreaks in places we once thought safe. The frequency and complexity of these medical and travel security incidents have resulted in organisations’ rising concerns on the safety of their business travellers and international assignees.

On 17 May 2017, HR & Risk professionals from reputable companies took part in two Incident Response Workshops organised by International SOS. These are the first of its kind simulation exercises conducted in Kuala Lumpur office, which facilitated and supported by regional medical and security experts.

These workshops aim to raise the awareness on organisations’ preparedness in times of crisis and their response to incidents impacting their employees. Participants were immersed in a simulated scenario, where they encountered developing crisis, testing their reactions and in the process, learn about the best practices for enhancing overall corporate travel risk mitigation.
