Understanding Personal Security and Risk

A Guide for Business Travelers

«

"[W]hy choose this [book]? Two reasons at least. First, Goslin has been there and done that, and he relates it and draws sensible and useful conclusions. For instance, he recalls the two 'genuine in-flight emergencies' that he has experienced. Second, from start to finish he puts his finger on what he calls 'the red-headed stepchild of the overall discipline of security', namely personal security training and awareness. He states the obvious, which does want stating: that personal security comes down to you, the traveller, and no other; tracking devices are all very well, but if you are the 'tip of the spear' of business development, in some obscure part of the world, you have to apply thought, beyond that 45 minute briefing you had before setting off from corporate security (or HR). Third, something else Goslin shrewdly points out; the world is 'increasingly insecure': for instance, kidnappers may go after mid-level employees, for smaller ransoms, rather than take longer to get millions for the senior exec captured…it takes homework, watching the terrain, and being observant for your self-defence." – Professional Security Magazine Online, Summer 2018

"When you start using the information in a book you're reviewing before you even finish reading it, that's a sign the book has great value. That is what happened with Understanding Personal Security and Risk by Charles E. Goslin." -- Terry V. Culver, CPP, CMAS, Security Management, June 2018

Om forfatteren

Charles Goslin is a retired CIA operations officer who served throughout the world in a wide range of capacities that bridged covert technical and HUMINT operations. He continues actively consulting in retirement on international intelligence, security and risk issues faced by multinational corporations operating in some of the world’s most hostile regions. Charles experience offers unique value for the business traveler that must, out of necessity, venture into "Indian Country." His perspective is one drawn from years working in the trenches of the third-world, rather than the relative comfort of a Washington office. Charles has authored and published numerous white papers on the security threat and business risk issues, and lectures regularly on terrorist radicalization and the threat of jihadist groups to Europe and the U.S. He has worked abroad in India, Africa, Central & South America, Europe and the Middle East with personal experience in crisis management and evacuation of facilities and personnel on numerous occasions. His expertise has been solicited by national media, both broadcast and print.
