About the WorldAware Data That Powers Terra Dotta’s AlertTraveler®
Note: on June 25, 2018, iJET International was rebranded as WorldAware. The value of intelligence is determined by quality sources, thoughtful analyses and contextualized insights. WorldAware's Global Integrated Operations Center (GIOC) is founded upon best practice methodologies pioneered by the world’s most advanced intelligence organizations. Comprised of over 115 analysts, WorldAware's team of regional and subject matter experts have extensive experience in their fields. Our analysts come from a variety of backgrounds including the military, government intelligence agencies, academia, NGOs, and the private sector; our analytical team combines both experience and understanding to provide exceptional insight and deliver accurate and actionable intelligence.
We maintain an in-depth intelligence database on more than 200 countries and territories and over 400 cities. The team obtains data from over 20,000 sources, both open source and private contacts, and monitors the globe in 30 languages, 24 hours a day, to ensure that our clients have the best information available to aid in critical decision-making.
First, for every incident our sources pick up, WorldAware weighs the need to generate an alert against a set of reporting thresholds that we have refined over 15 years of operational experience. Our goal is to ensure that we reduce the “noise” coming into our client’s decision-making processes. We have heard frequently over the years that some other providers “just bombard us with notifications.” When WorldAware alerts something, our clients can have confidence that “this matters.”
For the items we alert, there is a high likelihood that the event will yield an appreciable impact to life safety or business continuity.

Typically issued within 15 minutes of our first learning about the event.
- Warning – provides a notification of a situation where the potential to impact employees, travelers, expatriates, client assets, or business continuity.
