05 Feb 2015 - LONDON - Hostage Awareness and Kidnap Prevention Seminar.


This event gives essential practical training for the executive traveller, security professional and contingency planner.

There are over 20,000 reported kidnapping incidents worldwide every year.  The sad fact is that many Kidnap for Ransom cases could have been avoided.  If a kidnapping occurs there are many things that can and should be done to ensure the speedy, safe return of the Captives to their loved ones.

This Seminar details vital strategies to reduce the risk of kidnap and to maximise the chances of a desirable outcome.
With correct training...

  • YOU CAN reduce the chance of being kidnapped in the first place.
  • YOU CAN positively affect the outcome of any Hostage situation.
  • YOU CAN minimise the risk of unnecessary harm befalling you or other captives.
  • YOU CAN maximise the chances of returning home to your loved ones in the shortest possible timeframe.

If you are a Security Professional or you or your employees are intending to operate in a hostile environment - you will find this training of relevance and benefit.

The Key Speaker, and CEO of ASIC Ltd, is a former HM Forces Officer who was instrumental in the design and dissemination of the UK Hostage Awareness and Survival policy.  Having been intimately involved in the safe recovery of Hostages, he has appeared on national news stressing the importance and benefits of suitable training for individuals or companies who may fall victim to this pernicious industry.
