The recent events in Venezuela with riots in the street and the political opposition being jailed should worry any corporate security, business continuity, intelligence, or crisis management professional.
Whether you’re doing business in Venezuela or not, the developments over the past few weeks should cause companies to review their current approach to managing global risk, monitoring developments around the world, and their plans to respond to an international incident.
In this episode of the Managing Uncertainty Podcast, Bryghtpath Principal & CEO Bryan Strawser and Senior Consultant Jennifer Otremba discuss their experiences during the 2011 – 2013 uprisings across North Africa & the Middle East – and several specific tactics that they used during the unrest in Egypt that impacted their then-employer.
