Kidnap and Ransom
Over 40,000 kidnapping incidents occur every year.
Who is targeted?
The security situation in many countries can quickly deteriorate, putting both business operations and company executives and their dependents at risk. Employees of multinationals and high net worth individuals are attractive targets for financially motivated criminal and terrorist groups around the world. However, anyone can be a target regardless of their personal wealth, whether or not they live in a high risk area, stand out from the population or are a local national.
In the event that an incident does take place the organisations that have proven themselves able to cope most effectively are those with thorough, tried and tested response plans and procedures, and access to professional and experienced advisors. This can make the difference between a rapid, controlled recovery or, in extreme cases, a business failing to recover at all.
