Crisis Response

Planning, Reacting to Emerging Threats, Resolution

Our specialist Crisis Response capability was established in 2002 as a provider to the Lloyd’s Insurance Market, for the resolution of “kidnap for ransom” cases.

We have resolved incidents including kidnap for ransom, extortion, loss control, employee dishonesty, political threats and piracy.

We regularly deliver support in response to unforeseen emerging threats. We draw on all aspects of our wider Group in order to deliver the appropriate skill set to deal with whatever challenges our clients face.

Today we see Cyber threats as a significant emerging risk to both individuals and companies alike and have adapted our capability to address this.

We work with clients to develop their preparedness to deal with crisis events and have run many training exercises to test their plans and increase their resilience.
