Kidnapping: risk management and prevention

Corporations, because of their nationality, international reach or the location of their production sites, have become priority targets for organised crime. To plan for and prevent the risk of kidnapping, GEOS proposes to train senior management, personnel, business travelers and expatriates, in the prevention, detection and management of K&R-related security incidents.

Mitigate the risk of kidnapping in companies by providing personnel with the capacity to detect, prevent and manage a kidnapping situation.

All management and personnel who travel and work in high-risk regions.
12 trainees maximum per session

1 to 2 days.
