Advantages in Action

Challenge

A global business with both local nationals and expats operates in a country where the political environment quickly became unstable.

Solution

Leveraging the pre-event preparation and training provided by AIG, the client quickly deployed its crisis management and emergency communications protocols, allowing for safe evacuation and relocation of all expats and local nationals, medical treatment, and family support, as necessary.

AIG Benefit

The client was prepared to act quickly in the event of a crisis and, with the support of our emergency operations centers, relocated its employees and their families efficiently and safely.

Challenge

While living abroad with their family, the spouse of a CEO believed they were being followed.

Solution

The client implemented its AIG-supported crisis plan. AIG responded immediately by sending in-person security to protect the spouse, engaging with local law enforcement, and ensuring the family’s safety.

AIG Benefit

The CEO’s spouse was kept out of harm’s way, reinforcing the continued need for a safe travel advice plan for executives and their families, including guidance for lone travelers, allowing for rapid response in the event of an emergency.

Challenge

A former employee dismissed for gross negligence made specific threats against the company’s current employees.

Solution

The client immediately contacted AIG, who engaged Crisis24—a specialized crisis prevention and response consultancy that worked with the client’s crisis team to increase security awareness and employee safety. In addition, local police were engaged, extra security was provided, and protocols were established to report potential active shooter incidents for early intervention.

The client was prepared to quickly respond to the threat through its preparedness training supported by AIG’s claims professionals and Crisis24.

What is Kidnap, Ransom, & Extortion Insurance?

The primary purpose of kidnap, ransom, and extortion (“KR&E”) insurance is to protect companies and families against the high costs associated with a kidnapping. These incidents are typically enacted to extort high sums of money from those insured. Though high-wealth individuals and their families are often targeted, individuals who work for large, lucrative companies may also be at risk—particularly with foreign business travel. For this reason, many coverage options now extend to employees and their families.

Today, KR&E policies may also cover workplace violence, which includes active shooter scenarios. The considerable physical risks of these events are evident, but there are many hidden costs, as well. These include settlements, evacuation procedures, and rest and rehabilitation of the individuals involved.

The scenarios described herein are offered only as examples. Coverage depends on the actual facts of each case and the terms, conditions and exclusions of each individual policy. Anyone interested in the above product(s) should request a copy of the standard form of policy for a description of the scope and limitations of coverage.
