CNA chooses red24 for KRE cover
Written by staff reporter
CNA has appointed red24 security management as a partner for its kidnap, ransom and extortion coverage.
red24 will offer specialist training to CNA’s clients to help them protect themselves against kidnap, ransom and extortion, providing country briefings and reports prior to travel departures and an end-to-end crisis management service for CNA to negotiate the safe return of a victim in the event of an incident.
Kidnap for ransom and political gain, which was once synonymous with the Latin American region, is becoming a multi-billion dollar global phenomenon that is now occurring more frequently, and in more locations across the world. It is a significant risk for staff who work overseas for all kinds of organisations from major corporations to charities.
red24’s CEO, Maldwyn Worsley-Tonks, said: “We are delighted that CNA has chosen red24 to assist it in dealing with the growing risk that KRE presents to companies, corporations, not-for-profit, humanitarian and relief organisations, and individual business travellers alike.
“Responding to KRE situations requires a unique and specific set of skills. red24, which has been involved in more than 300 KRE cases worldwide, could not be better positioned to fulfil this business need and also help CNA’s clients learn how to reduce their risks of becoming victims of such crime.”
