Political Risk and Security Review
-- Recent events in the Middle East and North Africa have served to highlight the fact that now, more than at any other time, organisations are increasingly vulnerable due to their exposure to risk factors in the country and regions in which they operate. The risk posed relates not only to organisations who must concern themselves with the physical security of their staff and operations on the ground, but also has far wider implications due to the location of both commodities and suppliers. In the face of this increased risk, reliable and timely analysis becomes increasingly vital to organisations, providing them with the context necessary to make crucial decision. Furthermore, in this age of social media where, in a number of instances, there is almost an over abundance of available information, the issue is increasingly not merely about accessing information but requires the isolating and interpreting of the pertinent information. The Inkerman Group’s Political Risk and Security Review, written by the analysts in our Corporate Intelligence team is intended to provide a focused analysis of the most critical developments and the risks arising from both the political stability of a country or region and the implications for business of a country’s macroeconomic and social policies.
