Travel Threat Analysis Report

Knowledge is the cornerstone of security. You should understand what is happening in the part of the world where you are traveling. Pinkerton's travel security risk assessments deliver detailed analysis of potential threats in the areas of travel, political climate, health concerns, environmental hazards, natural disasters, and transportation disruption. This intelligence is crucial for informed decision-making and travel planning, enabling travelers to be aware of and avoid high-risk areas.

  • Recent incidents and key points
  • Recommendations
  • Social considerations
  • Information security

Pinkerton Crime Index Reports

We’ve taken the guesswork out of crime risk. Clients traveling to or operating within the USA, Canada, Mexico, UK, Sweden, or Australia can leverage our Pinkerton Crime Index (PCI) reports — our AI and frontier data science platform, and the first accurate and consistent measure of neighborhood crime risk and trends.

Our detailed reports provide up-to-date analyses and insights into crime risk and trends for the seven major crime types at a neighborhood level on a monthly scale. This means you can enhance your security strategies for your corporate travelers accordingly — such as where they should stay and where to play.

Our reports can also help you make informed decisions about the locations where you intend to establish or expand operations. With PCI you can compare crime risk and trends in neighborhoods on the East Coast to neighborhoods on the West Coast and anywhere in between.

  • Emergency services identification and coordination
  • Crime risk score
  • Crime risk maps
  • Neighborhood spillover
  • Components of crime and severity weighting
  • Crime dynamics and month-over-month trends
  • Regional summary

Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM) Response Services

When corporate executives and key personnel travel to environments they cannot fully secure, such as hotel rooms, meeting rooms, and vehicles, ensuring the privacy of their conversations is paramount. Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM) play a crucial role in safeguarding their confidential information. Our service includes sweeps conducted by experts to ensure that these spaces are free of illicit electronic eavesdropping devices, protecting sensitive information. Along with a high-tech sweep for unauthorized audio and video devices, our experts perform a thorough physical search for:

  • Bugged telephones and Polycom phone systems
  • Idle surveillance equipment that may be turned off or out of batteries
  • Reflections from camera lenses
  • Passwords left on desks or under keyboards
  • Computers left on and logged in
  • Inadequate document disposal and paper shredders

The Pinkerton Difference

With our holistic approach and seasoned expertise in protection and security, you can embark on every journey with confidence, knowing that our global resources and intelligence-led services are securing your path. Whether you are seeking an international travel risk assessment or close protection, Pinkerton is the answer to your safety and security.

It wasn’t too long ago that this stereotype often matched with reality. But today’s executive protection professionals require a working knowledge of technology tools, an understanding of international cultures, politics and current events, and increased situational awareness skills in a dynamic world presenting constant threat.
