Terrorism poses significant dangers when it comes to business enterprises. Subnational armed groups regularly target businesses, especially foreign interests. Oil fields, flow stations, cargo ships, hotels, airports, shopping malls and the highly-trained foreign professionals who are running them are all in tremendous and constant risk of being attacked – or abducted. This is especially true in regions that are the most rich in natural resources – otherwise called emerging markets offering quite lucrative investment opportunities. North Africa, the Middle East, South and Central Asia are all rich in oil, gas and other natural resources and they offer unparalleled growth in several key market segments, but they are also plagued by conflicts and terrorist activity.
Companies and even security experts often underestimate the hazards of new investments in overseas countries and markets. This regularly leads to losses in human lives. Material loss, disruptions, lost revenue and the damages made to company culture cost billions of dollars annually. the Worldwide Terror List 2015 – Global Assessment of Active Terrorist Organizations is an exceptional tool for business professionals, security experts and protection officers who are responsible for physical and staff security or executive protection of corporations or charged to guard foreign investments. It provides a detailed and extensive overview of all major terrorist outfits in the world and presents nuanced information on the businesses they target on a regular basis.
