Kidnap and Ransom

“Kidnap and extortion are very real and growing threats in today's world. While the most vulnerable companies to kidnapping are those that have employees based or travelling overseas, organizations that have high profiles, handle  large amounts of cash, or work with sensitive information are also at risk”.
