What events and incidents does Riskline cover?

Generally, Riskline will cover events and incidents that have an actual or expected impact on travel plans, operations, personnel safety or client assets. Some of what we cover include:

  • Political developments like elections
  • Political violence and acts of terrorism
  • Demonstrations and other forms of unrest
  • Major violent crimes
  • Natural and environmental hazards like hurricanes
  • Health risks and medical service disruptions
  • Strikes, transport disruptions and other safety issues

How does Riskline determine Risk Levels?

We assess risk using a custom methodology based on internationally recognised risk management procedures. Our priority when assessing risk is the safety and security of travellers and the integrity of their travel plans.

We use five standardised Risk Levels to assess risk to personnel, travel and operations across all our reports. Each Risk Level is assessed based on an actual or potential impact as well as the likelihood of an incident occurring, if it has yet to take place.

For further information, please download the Risk Level Criteria document below.

What sources does Riskline use?

Riskline monitors open and social media sources on a 24/7 basis, including international and local media outlets, government travel advisories and official accounts such as police forces and disaster management agencies. We also rely on the expertise of our analysts and a network of human sources for the latest local safety and security issues.

How often are Riskline reports updated?

All Riskline reports are updated on a regular basis. Our 24/7 Risk Alerts are written and sent in real-time, with updates issued when substantial new information about an incident is confirmed. Advisories, Country Reports and City Reports are updated and edited for content regularly by expert regional analysts to ensure our reports reflect the situation on the ground.
