International security

Have you spotted a growth opportunity in a sensitive part of the world, with plans to open a subsidiary office or buy out a local company? Does your company have ex-pats posted abroad, or send employees (with or without their families) regularly or occasionally on missions in at-risk countries or zones for which you lack sufficient information?


Extensive experience forged in some of the most risk-exposed parts of the world has allowed HAXXOM to develop a particular expertise in the management of security issues in risky environments, providing essential support for international projects.
