The kidnapping of German billionaire Reinhold Würth’s disabled son and the gassing of F1 racing driver Jenson Button and his wife by burglars at a St Tropez villa are just two recent examples of high-profile personal security breaches. Here CampdenFO presents the results of its online personal security poll, conducted on behalf of SecTech UK, and speaks to two security experts
