Being on business assignment abroad means potentially facing medical issues, as well as security threats. Considering the increase and rapid change of these threats, business travelers and expatriates need to receive the appropriate information and response to remain safe whilst abroad. Ensuring people’s safety is our critical aim but we also help businesses keep their assets safe in case of emergency to ensure business continuity.

With one phone call, mobile employees and their managers can contact GCS’ multilingual 24/7 Security Response Center, operated in partnership with Drum Cussac, to receive front-line security assistance. With GCS you get access to:
