In many regions of the world, kidnapping is big business. Corporate executives, managers and personnel have become the priority targets for terrorists, criminals and guerrilla forces. Incidents of kidnapping are significantly on the rise, particularly with the knowledge that many people who operate in high risk environments usually carry kidnap and ransom insurance policies.

In South America, Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East, terrorist and criminal groups use kidnapping as a tool for fundraising and to instill fear.
