Every year over 30,000 cases of kidnap for ransom and extortion are reported, along with tens of thousands of cases of marine piracy, workplace violence, and other crises. We work very hard to protect our clients from such incidents as well as to resolve these crises if they are affected.
Through proprietary algorithms and MILSPEC intelligence gathering, we actively track globally evolving criminal activity, including Kidnap and Ransom, Extortion, Marine Piracy, and Data Extortion. By closely monitoring these crimes, we can mitigate our clients’ risk and exposure to transnational and local criminal organizations, drug cartels, human trafficking groups, and others. Areas in which these groups are most active include:
The Americas: Mexico, Bolivia, Venezuela, Honduras, Guatemala, Haiti, Colombia, Brazil, and Ecuador
Elsewhere – Nigeria, North Africa, Eastern Europe, Mainland China, India, Afghanistan and Pakistan (AfPak)
Data Extortion – Worldwide
About 60% of the world’s kidnappings take place in Latin America
