Despite media reporting, abductions worldwide are increasing. These abductions take a variety of forms ranging from a few hours to much longer durations. US business travelers are ideal targets due to many factors ranging from a lack of familiarity of the area to a lack of local connections. In most cases abductions are targets of opportunity wherein criminals abduct someone based on availability and chance of success. SBS trains individuals a variety of skills to help avoid being abducted but if abducted how to survive and possibly escape.

No one thinks they will become involved in a kidnapping or a life-threatening situation. Yet, tens of thousands find themselves in hostile, dangerous attacks every year. In these circumstances, knowing what to do can be the difference between surviving … or not.
Knowing the various stages and details of each stage of an Attack Cycle is vital to your safety. In fact, your safety and survival will depend on recognizing and reacting to four key factors.
Concerned companies and individuals are becoming more aware of the“avoidable dangers” of business travel and have started exploring their options to reduce both the risks and the liability factors. When traveling, certain events are generally considered beyond a person’s control.
Establishing an effective, combined workplace violence prevention and insider threat program has become a necessary skill (and new global standard) for individuals, corporations, and even “at risk” family members.
At SBS Training Solutions, we believe it is better to teach a person how to avoid a dangerous situation rather than teach a victim how to survive an actual assault or kidnapping incident. To accomplish this, it all begins with Surveillance Detection.
Virtual Kidnapping is an extortion scheme that tricks people into paying a ransom to free a loved one. This type of scam fools the target into believing their loved one has been abducted and will suffer from violence or death if the ransom is not quickly paid. The extortionist often spoofs or clones the number of the “kidnapped” victim, making the target believe they must pay the ransom immediately. Currently, most of these calls originate from Mexico or the Caribbean, and often are made from incarcerated convicts.
Your ability to administer medical treatment during or immediately after an abduction or hostile action could save your life … or someone else’s in an emergency medical situation. In fact, emergency medicine is a key component to Abduction Management. Basic lifesaving techniques and trauma/wound treatment can sustain life until professional medical care is available. It only makes sense to be able to protect your employees, colleagues, or loved ones with emergency first aid training.
Within the international business community, it has become essential to know how to avoid an abduction or kidnapping situation. But what happens if the targeted victim doesn’t see the warning signs or is unable to prevent the attack?
How you react when (and immediately after) you are being abducted or kidnapped becomes a matter of life-or-death. Knowing how to defeat or escape personal restraints (zip ties, handcuffs, duct tape, flex cuffs, or rope) can make the difference between becoming a sad statistic or escaping and staying alive.
The number of kidnappings and abductions reported annually are currently in the thousands, and the trend is increasing at an alarming rate. Even more frightening is the fact that it is spreading geographically, expanding from a regional issue into a significant global concern. In the past, Latin America was the highest threat area, but Asia, Africa, and the Middle East have become just as dangerous. Some experts estimate that less than 20% of all kidnappings are reported to authorities.
Abductions and hostage situations have become an international problem. Every year finds an increase of potential kidnapping threats to corporate employees as well as family members.
Companies concerned with employee safety need to implement Abduction Management policies and specialized training procedures, especially for those individuals who need to travel or find themselves in high-risk situations.
