Burkina Faso, Iraq, Hong Kong, Mexico, Lebanon and Myanmar are considered the countries with the highest risk to businesses and travel in 2020 due to terrorism, political tension, civil unrest and violence by armed groups.

2. The 2020 Kidnap & Maritime Piracy Map and Report: This report helps businesses and organizations to anticipate and prepare for threats related to kidnap for ransom and maritime security. This resource highlights the five countries that are considered the hotspots for these specific risks in 2020, with accompanying analyses and in-depth commentary. This document equally offers a color-coded map, in order to easily identify different risk levels around the world in a bird's-eye view format.

In 2020, Mexico, Libya and Iraq top the list for the highest kidnap for ransom threat rating, whilst the Philippines, Somalia and Malaysia face an increased threat of maritime piracy.

"Our 2020 Threat Forecast has been informed by comprehensive kidnap data and threat forecasting provided by IHS Markit in collaboration with NYA methodology and terminology. Each location's threat rating takes into account incident frequency, level of violence, perpetrator capability and motivations and the effectiveness of security forces and the rule of law. We respond to over 130 cases each year which gives us a unique insight into the threats faced by organizations every day throughout the world. This map provides a useful indicator of kidnap and piracy risks around the world and our global team remains committed to helping organizations understand the threats to their people, information, property and reputation," said Alex Kemp, Managing Director, NYA, a GardaWorld Company.
