To those of you tracking the spread of the 2019-nCoV (Corona Virus). Here’s a great interactive map, with real time updates from Johns Hopkins University.
All of us in the security industry, especially those in crisis management or travel security fields, should monitor the spread of the virus, and assess the implications on your employees, families, and global operations.
As security practitioners, we are tasked at assessing the vulnerabilities and risks of all forms of threats to our personnel and operations. Not understanding our vulnerabilities may in effect expose people to exposure, and our operations to suffer.
We at ROM Global Risk Management have actively been involved in an extraction mission from the hub of the outbreak. The subject is now in the USA, undergoing observation. More on that shortly.
