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.

The recent mass shooting in Las Vegas throws into stark relief the risks faced from active shooters and the duty of care responsibility of organisations towards employees, visitors to their premises, and other stakeholders. Whether at home or overseas, the C-Suite and Corporate Security Directors should be prepared for a multitude of threats from cyber security, to kidnapping & ransom, to terrorism and armed attacks.

Now in its second year, Corporate Liability, Travel Risk and Duty of Care, will bring together leading security professionals to address these issues and look at the lessons to be learnt. The conference will build upon the inaugural conference run in Washington D.C. last year and the series of Tackling Kidnapping conferences staged by Quaynote in the U.S. and the U.K. over the last decade.

With a particular focus on dealing with the aftermath of the Las Vegas shootings, the conference will explore issues such as:

*How the Las Vegas shootings differed from the classic active shooter scenario
*What this means in terms of security planning, corporate liability and gun constraints
*How do we recover those who have survived?
*What are the best ways of handling the media during and after a security crisis?
*What changes should hotels, universities, schools and workplaces make to their security planning in the light of the Las Vegas attack?
* Panel discussion on sharing best practices and challenges in Duty of Care and Travel Risk Management;
* Legal and moral obligations of the organisation towards the employee & family;
* 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;
* Levering technology to assist travelers and enable employers to achieve TRM, DOC and due diligence objectives;
* 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 Duty Of Care exposure.

Limited speaking and sponsorship opportunities are currently available so please contact us now for more information:
