Tysers Insurance Brokers | Kidnap & Ransom and Stalking

Kidnap Insurance


With the security risk environment ever evolving, we are becoming increasingly vulnerable to a wide range of security threats.

No matter where you live or travel to in the modern world, we are all exposed to threats posed by malicious assailants; be they criminal or terrorist-related. Human, rather than physical assets are increasingly viewed as lucrative targets. High profile individuals and those closest to them are amongst the most attractive marks for predators.

We work closely with our clients to assess their risk exposure, to allow us to tailor their Insurance policy and help to protect not only their assets, but their family, staff, and of course themselves.

What are the risks?

  • You and Your Dependants – Your personal wealth, position and lifestyle make you and your dependants appealing targets for criminals and have the potential to impact you without prior warning.
  • Targets – Contemporary terrorism increasingly targets people rather than physical assets in order to gain media attention. Luxury venues are also becoming a target of choice.
  • Social Media – Having a strong social media presence inadvertently makes you vulnerable to a range of security risks from assailants. Highlighting your daily routines, travel pattern and whereabouts in real time can be extremely dangerous.
