Security Issues and International Mobility: Getting Your Organization Security Ready!

We are excited to hear from Mr. Huw Longmore, Regional Security Manager for International SOS, Mr. Steven D. Ricciardi, Senior Director of Physical Security for Medtronic and Mr. Jan Mak, a Manager within the Cargill Global Mobility team.  Each will address their specific roles and how they work together to ensure the safety and security of their international employees travelling internationally and employees on cross-border assignments.

About our International Special Interest Group

We are a group of corporate and service oriented professionals working in the International Global Mobility industry in the Twin Cities.  In addition to the TCSHRM monthly events, our team will be offering two, live programs a year. The primary focus will be in International topics, however, we will continue to offer programs that interest students and professionals, both inside and outside of global mobility. HRCI/SHRM credits will continue to apply, when eligible, for these programs as well.

Our live meetings in June and October will continue to offer the networking opportunities our participants have valued in the past, including group discussion.  We will also expand these networking opportunities – in addition to time before the presentation, we will include additional time afterwards to allow attendees to continue one-on-one discussions or ask additional questions of the presenters.
