6th Annual Tackling Kidnapping, Hijack and Hostage Taking
Quaynote’s 6th annual ‘Tackling Kidnapping, Hostage Taking and Hijacking’ conference
Quaynote’s 6th annual ‘Tackling Kidnapping, Hostage Taking and Hijacking’ conference aims to update delegates on this persistent and ever-changing threat by highlighting the current hotspots, both those publicized and lesser known and discussing how the threat of kidnapping and hijack is evolving in those areas where employees could be most at risk.
The conference will identify and assess those criminal gangs and terrorist groups who are operating in each of the hot spots and to demonstrate how effective crisis management strategies and risk assessment can be used to mitigate the effects of these events. Organisations will learn how to assess their own vulnerability to the risk of kidnapping and learn how to adopt good practices for kidnap avoidance from key thought leaders in this area. The conference will explore the vicious cycle of ransom payouts and the preventative measures that companies should take when considering the personal security of staff working in at risk areas.
Why attend this conference?
Factors such as the growing chasm between the world’s richest and poorest, religious/ ethnic differences, fragile states weakened by political instability and corrupt law enforcement all go towards creating a fertile breeding ground for criminals, terrorists and political ideologists who use the kidnapping and detention of hostages as their chief fund raising tool.Visitor Demographic (Geographical Regions/Countries): United Kingdom (UK)

Organisational security and resilience in today’s climate of extreme threats
National Security and Resilience combines national security needs with an in-depth understanding of the design and implementation of resilience solutions. London sits at the epicentre of knowledge and resilience and is recognised globally as a centre of excellence, notably in national security and resilience.
The NS&R Conference will take place on 8th-9th November in the heart of London, bringing together a wealth of expertise which will entertain, inform and expand understanding. The leading conference programme is matched by its exceptional cast of speakers from across government and industry for one of the best programmes discussing organisational security and resilience.
The importance of organisational resilience
Global turbulence is expected. Competition, instability and uncertainty are constants in a changing world. Organisations face an unprecedented and growing number of potential disruptions to the status quo and the best laid strategic plans. As history repeats itself, prominent organisations will fail unless modern risk management and governance models incorporate scalable resilience metrics.
To survive and prosper in this new environment of heightened uncertainty and change, organisations must move past traditional risk and governance models and focus instead on resilience. Resilience applies at all levels: national, regional, organisational and corporate.
The NS&R Conference will deliver the latest issues and threats facing government departments/agencies, corporations and businesses, and thought provoking discussions on strategies and innovations to ensure you and your organisation meet these changing challenges.
