Experts Discuss International Risks at NVTC RiskNet Event

At the NVTC RiskNet event on March 27, insurance experts discussed kidnap, ransom and extortion risks, where they are, and how companies can manage such a complex and possibly debilitating crisis. Topics at the informative event included the anatomy of a kidnapping, special risks coverage, and crisis response, as well as pre-incident and preventative support.

According to the speakers at the event, which included Scott Carnie of Unity Resources Group, John Lally III of HCC Specialty, NVTC Board Member Jim LeBlanc of Unity Resources Group, and Charles Regini of Unity Resources Group, kidnapping threats are now a global phenomenon. Incidents are on the rise, including kidnappings of high net worth and business personnel. The threats are no longer confined to Latin American countries, and have become increasingly prevalent in Africa, the Middle East and Asia in recent years.

Risknet, an NVTC Member Benefit program, is now providing products and services to help members manage this integral part of their Duty of Care responsibilities. Click here to learn more.
