To help minimize the risk of kidnapping, conducting a comprehensive threat assessment and travel vulnerability analysis are now fundamental components of any true risk management program. Embracing its responsibility to its clients, Risk Control Strategies (RCS) created an all-inclusive risk mitigation assessment and analysis team staffed with actual subject matter experts on the issues of terrorism, kidnapping and travel security. The team works with our clients to diminish the risk of catastrophic loss through pre-incident training designed to avoid kidnappings.
RCS provides their clients with options that are proven to reduce their exposure to kidnapping through aggressive and pro-active assessments, analysis, planning and training. RCS has developed a comprehensive and proprietary Kidnap Mitigation Program (KMP) that includes countermeasures, training, policies and procedures. The RCS mission is to protect the client by reducing vulnerability to kidnapping and loss of life while protecting the corporation’s reputation and value.
KIDNAP FOR RANSOM COVERAGE
Both the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Central Intelligence Agency have stated that terrorists and saboteurs fully intend to continue using kidnapping as a means to fund those terrorist operations to wreak havoc on our society and kill Americans.
Normally insurance coverage would be the favored risk transfer mechanism in a corporate risk management program crafted to come to grips with this harsh reality. However, in today’s global marketplace the ability to secure insurance coverage alone is not sufficient to protect the lives of international travelers who could be potentially exposed to terrorist acts.
The professionals at RCS have been responsible for the safe recovery of kidnap victims around the globe. They have responded to kidnap situations for profit, as the result of terrorist acts or political motivations, and as a means of extortion that oftentimes involved innocent family members. Our proven response protocols will significantly impact the successful resolution of a kidnap for ransom situation and help ensure safe recovery of the victim.
Commonly known as blackmail, Extortion has increased dramatically since the downturn of the economy and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. The Mens Rea or intent behind this crime can range from revenge to opportunistic greed without regard to the irreparable damage caused to the victim. RCS professionals draw upon decades of Law Enforcement experience in both Federal and State jurisdictions to work with clients in responding to this life changing crime. With the utmost of discretion, we embrace our responsibility to incorporate various methodologies to expeditiously address and eliminate the threat to the best of our ability.
