Keeping your people safe, 24/7/365

Kidnap insurance has become more and more essential for global employees and individual contractors working in dangerous, remote or high profile situations all over the world. From Afghanistan and Iraq, to Nigeria, Somalia and across South America, the threat from kidnap for ransom is escalating from occasional incidents to planned activities from well-organised groups.
