Kidnap for ransom is a very real threat around the world.

Corporations need to protect their staff. Ransom demands can be overwhelming, with an estimated 15 countries recording cases of $25,000,000 or more in recent years. While kidnappers usually settle for a small percent of their original demand, the costs can be more than just financial. Kidnappers may refuse to negotiate and use excessive violence to achieve their aims.
