The globalized economy drives the need for many executives to travel extensively for business. Traditional threats such as kidnapping for ransom are more of a risk than ever in various regions of the world.
In addition, new threats are emerging from new groups using new tools. Terrorists such as ISIS or rogue states such as Iran often are motivated by political publicity and are skilled with digital tools and modern PR techniques. Detentions without a ransom motive result in much more unpredictable and dangerous outcomes.
