    TUESDAY, April 22, 2014 (HealthDay News) -- Less than 10 percent of crimes committed by mentally ill people are directly linked to the symptoms of their disorders, a new study shows. "When we hear about crimes committed by people with mental illness, they tend to be big headline-making crimes, so they get stuck in people's heads," said study author Jillian Peterson, a psychology professor at Normandale Community College in Bloomington, Minn.

With 2014 shaping up to be a busy year for global travelers, expert panel will focus on avoiding unnecessary risks

TREVOSE, Pa., Jan. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- International SOS, the world's leading medical and security services company, the global political and security risk consultancy Control Risks, its joint venture partner, and ASIS International's CSO Roundtable will host a complimentary webinar on how global organizations can prepare and manage their travelers in the year ahead-a year shaping up to be filled with opportunity and risk at every turn.

Global Political and Travel Security Risks 2014: Looking Ahead
Tuesday, Jan. 28, 2014, 1 - 2 p.m. Eastern

Last year was a busy one when it came to global events. There were security issues in Ukraine, Bangladesh and South Sudan, as well as attacks at the Westgate Mall in Kenya, during the Boston Marathon, and, most recently, in Russia as the Winter Games approach. The New Year has not started quietly, with continued security threats in the Central African Republic, tensions between Japan and China, as well as other risks. The year 2014 looks to be just as complex as 2013.

Security specialists will highlight the global political and travel security risks these issues will present for internationally-minded organizations and look at what may lie ahead in 2014. We will share best practices to help organizations be as resilient as possible during turbulent times and to assist senior security executives as they provide travelers with advice on remaining safe and secure wherever they go.

Our expert panel will look at recent headlines, as well as current and historic data and tie it all together for attendees.

  • Pablo Weisz, Regional Security Manager, Americas, International SOS and Control Risks
  • Michael Moran, Vice President, Global Risk Analysis, Control Risks
  • Peter Piazza, Vice President, Strategic Operations, ASIS International
