What do you do if you observe “suspicious” behavior by fellow passengers 30,000 feet up in the air? There’s an unusual package on your subway car—what action should you take? Which countries should you avoid travelling to right now?  And what are the secrets to hassle-free travelling?

Whether it’s a flight to Rio, an A train ride to the Village or a Caribbean cruise, in today’s turbulent world, Americans need help navigating the skies, subways, seas and security checkpoints—and two of America’s top security experts visit 92Y to share “insider” travel tips and cautionary tales. John Miller is the NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence & Counter-Terrorism—and one of the few people to have interviewed Osama Bin Laden; Jane Holl Lute is the former Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security (2009-2013), responsible for managing the Department’s efforts to prevent terrorism and secure our nation’s borders. Peter Greenberg, CBS News Travel Editor, moderates.
