Advising and supporting the family and/or company of a victim and negotiating a safe and timely release requires a sophisticated understanding of the motivations of the criminals involved, knowledge of the socio-economic climate, familiarity with the local geography, and fluency in different languages and dialects. Intuition and experience is often the best judge of whether negotiations are likely to secure a release or likely to trigger a second demand. The C &I team's capability to bring critical experience and resources to the table and negotiate favorable resolutions has fueled U.S. Security Associates' worldwide reputation as the best security company for crisis management consulting.

With the selection of U.S. Security Associates' C &I division to provide Response Consultants, Griffin Underwriting, Ltd. is offering its policyholders an exceptional value that merges world-class crisis management planning and response with access to high limit coverage and the security of reinsurance in the London Market.
