Kidnap for Ransom Whitepaper

Kidnap for Ransom Whitepaper

REPORT • Mar 2021

Kidnapping is a cruel crime, not only for the victim, but also for the family members. Many victims and families continue to struggle with the psychological consequences long after their release, in this guide we examine the crime and review crisis management from different perspectives.

Kidnappings - an increasing and complex risk

This guide is intended to help affected families, companies and NGOs, but also brokers and insurers, to better understand this often misleading topic and to know which initial measures must be taken in the event of an abduction.
