Today’s headlines shout out the new white color crime wave silently hitting banks, businesses and credit card companies.  And travel sites and business credit cards are not immune to these criminal activities.  Come to the Direct Member Round Table on July 18 to learn about common sense security precautions travel managers can provide to their travelers.

Join us as we welcome Robert Mintz, Division Manager Corporate Relations and Global Travel, Rotary International and Chair of the GBTA Risk Committee, who will advance our knowledge on what is going on today, what actions should be taken by our travelers to protect corporate and personal data, and how we can raise the bar for all our duty of care responsibilities.
