In 2016 alone, the media reported up to 20,000 kidnap, ransom and extortion incidents, many of which occurred within Asia. The actual figure is likely to be much higher as many incidents go unreported for fear of reprisals or reputational damage.
Many organisations know they are sending their people to countries with wide ranging threats and perils without adequate preparation or cover, whether it’s physical protection or insurance cover. Employers recognise the need for travel and personal accident policies, but they leave themselves underinsured and exposed by neglecting to cover themselves and their employees against security-related exposures.
A kidnap, ransom and extortion policy is not solely focused on the threat. In essence, it is a security solution to help meet the challenges of today’s rapidly evolving geopolitical arena.
Our new eBook seeks to raise the profile of this evolving peril, educate professionals who are not experienced in dealing with kidnap, ransom and extortion risks, highlight the risks organisations face, and how to mitigate their exposure.
