London Conference – Tackling Kidnapping Hijack & Hostage Taking
The conference takes place on 21-22 May, 2014, at Radisson Blu Edwardian, London Heathrow.
To what extent are criminals gathering intelligence from social networking sites to select better targets? What is the deep web and what can criminals achieve from it? Who could be at risk of kidnap within your own organisation and what are the latest trends in ransom demands? Why are web domains being kidnapped for ransom and how might this threat evolve?
These and many other issues will be explored at 5th international ‘Tackling Kidnapping, Hostage Taking and Hijacking’ conference which will 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.
