Executive Travel Security Management

 - The company name or logo should not be printed on the senior executive’s credit cards, airline travel cards and car rental cards. 
 - The travel agent used by a senior executive must be briefed on good .travel security procedures. Travel agents also should not comment on the traveler’s position or importance when making hotel reservations.
 - Airline tickets, ticket jackets and itineraries should be issued using only the full last name and the initial of the first name. 

- Forms of address such as “Mr.,” “Mrs.,” “Ms.” and “Miss” should not be used. Do not use military ranks, company titles or professional forms of address such as“Dr.” or “Prof.”
  - Airline tickets, ticket jackets and itineraries should not bear the company .name or address. 
 - Passports of senior executives should be reviewed on a regular basis. A new passport should be obtained if an executive’s passport bears entry, exit or visa stamps for controversial countries such as Israel. In some countries, foreigners must surrender their passports when registering at a hotel.
 - For visits to high-risk countries, hotel reservations for visiting senior executives should be made by a local manager in his or her name, preferably not by an expatriate. They can even be registered in the name of the local manager.
 - The local manager should not send a letter to a visiting senior executive’s hotel requesting that the hotel charges be forwarded to the local corporate office. If such financial arrangements are preferred, the local manager can place the hotel charges on his own credit card or pay in cash upon the departure of the visiting senior executive.
 - In high-risk countries, the local manager should not use a personal vehicle .or company car to transport a visiting senior executive. In most cases, regular company vehicles can be easily identified with the local manager or firm. Instead, a car should be rented especially for the senior executive’s visit immediately before his or her arrival.
 - Senior executives should not be transported with another executive or .government official.
 - For visits by senior executives to high-risk countries, careful advance security planning and a security liaison with military or high-ranking government officials may be necessary.
 - Escort protection by professionals, unarmed or armed, may be necessary based on the risk and location of your travels. Only use executive protection services from reputable companies that have been screened.
