Crisis Response

Kidnap for Ransom

Kidnap for Ransom

For business travelers and expat workers in high-risk areas, the chances of kidnap for ransom can be minimized but cannot ever be completely eliminated. In the event of a kidnap occurring, our consultants expertly guide the client through the entire process, using proven principles and methodologies to ensure the safe and timely return of the victim.

Kidnap for ransom and threat extortion

Kidnap for ransom and threat extortion in their various forms can have devastating effects, not only on the victims, but also on a victim’s family, company or organization, and on others connected to the incident. They can lead to weeks or months of stressful and exhausting negotiations. An ill-considered kidnap or extortion response could put the victim’s well-being at risk, increase the risk to other potential targets, and even threaten the viability or reputation of the organization.
