Governments might insist they don't negotiate with terrorists - but when you're doing business in the world's most dangerous territories, you'll want one of the City's most tight-lipped sectors on your side.

This week we talk to two specialists in kidnap insurance: Mark Harris, director of crisis response at Olive Group, and Jon Gregory, global product head of kidnap and ransom at AIG.

They provide their tips on how to avoid kidnap in the first place, as well as how to prepare your family if you're heading abroad - and what to do if you are snatched.
