Kidnap and Ransom - In many regions of the world, kidnapping is a growing threat. Corporate executives, Humanitarian volunteers, Expatriate workers and their families have all become potential targets for criminals, guerrilla forces and dissidents. Incidents of kidnapping are on the rise, particularly with the knowledge that many of those travelling to nigh risk areas will have some form of insurance to cover kidnap and ransom expenses.
Insurance is an important element to dealing with a kidnap incident but it does little to proactively prevent it from happening. If a company knowingly sends personnel in to a potentially dangerous area then it is important that they provide appropriate training and create contingency plans in order to minimize the risks. VSI Security Security will work with you or your organization to address the threat of kidnapping and properly train those at risk.
Handling a major crisis such as kidnap or illegal detention requires prompt, professional and timely response. VSI Security's Team has extensive experience of kidnap for Ransom (K&R) cases and maintains personnel on a minimum 'notice to move' who are ready to deploy anywhere in the world within 24 hours of being notified.
Our consultants act exclusively as advisors to customers, assisting them in making critical and timely decisions. We can also provide additional support to the victim's family.
VSI Security does not act as an exclusive responder to an insurance company and as such can provide priority crisis response to all customers.
