Kidnap & Ransom Coverage

You may think, “it’ll never happen to us.” Unfortunately, it could.

Consider these scenarios:

  • An estranged spouse illegally picks up her child from school, and then disappears. Authorities determine the child is in danger, and issue an Amber Alert.
  • A professor on a scientific study trip in Mexico is abducted. Kidnappers force him to pay an immediate ransom, and drive him to several ATMs.
  • A hacker infects your school’s computers with ransomware, holding your records and sensitive data hostage until you pay up. Refuse, and your files will be destroyed or publicly released.

Cases like these are all too familiar

You may think Kidnap and Ransom (K&R) Coverage sounds extreme and that the need is too far-fetched. Something your school would never use. However, the above scenarios show that the threats facing today’s schools are very real.
