As corporations and governments become more litigious and risk averse, international risk management and corporate security becomes more complex.

- Presents an overview of the region, with relevant historical background
- Offers recent case examples of crime and common issues facing a given region or country
- Highlights the range and frequency of corporate breaches and crimes specific to countries in the region
- Provides detailed write-ups of every country in the region including the major players—Japan, China, India, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Philippines
