long paragraph which boils down to :

1) always know where you're going.
2) don't go there late at night
3) don't travel alone

combine paranoia with planning and traveling companions and you should
lower your chance of being abducted to your chance of being hit by a
car when you cross the street.

Also consider: If this "consulting company" is a big outfit, then
they probably already have security procedures. If it's a small
outfit, you can't expect as much support.

I can answer any question.
"I don't know" is an answer.
"I don't know yet" is a better answer.
