Is Israel safe?

Despite media hype, Israel is a comparatively low crime country. The U.S. Department of State Overseas Security Advisory Council notes: “Every year, thousands of U.S. citizens visit Israel for study, tourism, and business without incident.” Some fraught areas obviously have been struck by terror attacks in the past, although tourists are not targets. For added peace of mind, an armed security person accompanies the group throughout the week.

Can I bring a weapon?

No.

Justification

Security professionals are often challenged to justify the ROI and budget for the Security department, a non-revenue producing cost center. The proactive methods taught in the seminar help mitigate threats which if unchecked can wreak havoc on a company or agency’s reputation in the marketplace, operational resiliency, compliance, and other factors all of which impact the bottom line.
