Now in its second year, Corporate Liability, Travel Risk and Duty of Care will build upon the inaugural conference run in Washington D.C. last year and the series of conferences staged by Quaynote in the U.S., U.K. and Europe over the last decade.

Quaynote`s impressive track record includes the Tackling Kidnapping conferences, run regularly in London, Houston and Miami, and Duty of Care towards employees travelling overseas, run for 5 years in central London, and the security conferences organised by Quaynote for insurance provider AIG in Houston and L.A. last year.

Focusing on the Duty of Care organisations have to keep their employees secure in both domestic and overseas environments, the conference will explore issues such as:

* How a family copes during and after a kidnap or other situation;
* Life after captivity: what resources are available to the family after the incident;
* Legal and moral obligations of the organisation towards the employee & family;
* Handling the media during a security crisis;
* University active shooter case-study and the trauma faced by students in the aftermath;
* A review of the the legal, medical and psychological response to this type of situation,
* Panel discussion on sharing best practices and challenges in Duty of Care and Travel Risk Management;
* Levering technology to assist travelers and enable employers to achieve TRM, DOC and due diligence objectives;
* Risk Mitigation technology providers to showcase the latest software, mobile applications, communication devices / beacons;
* Intelligence and security training;
* C-suite philosophy and structuring;
* Crisis Management;
* Cyber extortion

Corporate Liability, Travel Risk and Duty of Care is essential for Risk Managers, HR Directors, Security Directors and anyone in the security space who has DOC exposure.
