Kidnap and Ransom
Peace of mind delivered through prevention,
training and response
In many countries employees of international organisations are attractive targets to kidnappers due to
the high profile and perceived wealth of the company they work for.
The impact of a kidnap can be enormous. It is extremely traumatic for those involved and dealing
with an incident can lead to significant losses from ransom payments, business interruption, litigation,
adverse publicity and long-term damage to reputation. Every corporation with global operations should
consider protecting themselves and their staff against the risk of kidnap, extortion, detention and hijack.
We make confidentiality an utmost priority and operate a strict policy of non-disclosure of client details.
