  7. Kidnapping and Ransom: A Risk Management Process CMME 2011

  8. Kidnapping and Ransom: Avoidance Avoid making yourself a target • Keep personal information private • Don’t carry business cards, family pictures and credit cards in your wallet (this will prevent an express kidnapping from becoming a traditional kidnapping) • Don’t give business cards to people that you don’t know • Eliminate your name and voice from your voicemail and cell phone answering protocol Know your neighbors Don’t reveal information to people unless they need to know Check the backgrounds of everyone that works for you Remain alert at all times, don’t get distracted Park in safe, open, well lit places with spaces between cars Don’t stay in your parked car Keep your keys in your hand CMME 2011

  9. Kidnapping and Ransom: Prevention • Change your routines • Often kidnappers will do surveillance to find out when you are most vulnerable. Change the following: • The times of departures and arrivals • The days of the week • The travel routes • Destinations • Methods of transportation (car, SUV, etc.) • Stay alert and be aware of your surroundings • Watch for someone following you. • Keep the vehicle in “drive” and engine running • Engage the automatic door locks • Keep vehicle windows closed or only slightly open CMME 2011

  10. Kidnapping and Ransom: Minimize the Harm • Virtual kidnappings… someone who sells you a false story • “We have your daughter and you’ll never see them again unless you deposit $$ in XX bank account.” • “We know where you live. We are going to kill you if you don’t pay.” • “I am looking at you right now. I’m going to kill you if you don’t make a deposit $$.” CMME 2011

  11. Kidnapping and Ransom: Minimize the Harm • Virtual Kidnapping • Many experts agree that you should… • Say, “give me your number and I’ll call you right away” and hang up. • Don’t answer the phone again. • Locate your family immediately. • Get a caller ID. • Install an answering machine for calls that you don’t recognize. • Don’t give out any personal or family information.

  13. Kidnapping and Ransom: Minimize the Harm Kidnapping and Ransom (K & R) Insurance • Costs/Premiums • If it leaks out that an employer has this coverage • It may increase the likelihood that kidnappers will target employees covered by this insurance • It may increase kidnapper’s demands • The policy may be cancelled • Benefits: • Loss prevention/how to avoid kidnappings • Handle ransom negotiations • Reimbursement for ransom payments, medical expenses, etc. • Frequency • 68% of kidnappings in Latin America are not covered by K & R insurance • 60% of employers have K & R coverage for some executives (Source: The Steele Foundation, 2006) CMME 2011
