AIG policyholders are Clayton’s exclusive insurance clients, and they will continue to receive pre- and post-incident consulting strategies for a kidnap victim’s safe return, for threats involving breach of a company’s network security, for malicious product tampering, and for other crisis situations. Aligning Clayton’s expanded services with the AIG Companies’ insurance capabilities provides a unique protection plan for each client.
