Kidnap & Extortion

With increasingly volatile economic and political conditions around the world, employees of U.S.- based businesses doing business overseas face a greater kidnapping risk than ever. Incidents are not limited to counties traditionally considered high risk - today a kidnapping can take place anywhere in the world. To address this troubling exposure, companies with staff who travel overseas purchase international kidnap & extortion coverage.
