Kidnap / Ransom Overview


Although rarely heard of in the United States, kidnap and other terrorist-related incidents pose serious risks in various areas of the world, especially against US citizens and corporations who often appear very wealthy in less developed regions. Kidnap and ransom insurance can be secured through Lloyd's of London to cover many risks including individuals (pleasure, corporate, and entertainers); corporate group coverage; or full protection of foreign-based offices (employees, office sites, physical property, and computer equipment) from kidnap, bombings and terrorist computer viruses.

All "claims" are managed by Control Risks, an elite international security force specializing in kidnapping and terrorism.

For more information on travel warnings for US citizens for specific countries, see the US State Department advisories or call for a complete Control Risks security report.
