Kidnapping Risk Reduction

Kidnap for ransom is a very real threat in many parts of the world. It is sometimes motivated by ideology; however in many countries such as for example Nigeria, Brazil or Mexico, kidnapping represents a relatively easy and quick way to obtain large amounts of money. Just the colour of your skin may make you stand out as a potential victim. Companies therefore have a duty of care to their travelling and expatriate staff. Participants on this workshop are given an insight into the various motivations for kidnapping, practical techniques on how to avoid a kidnap situation and advice on how to act if kidnapped. This course includes a role-play activity designed to simulate a typical kidnap situation.
