Threat management is a comprehensive process by which threats are received, investigated, assessed and researched and all mitigation and intervention options are carefully considered.

Whether you’re faced with a known individual or an anonymous threat actor, our experts can help. Our multidisciplinary threat management team comprises former federal, state and local law enforcement officials; federal prosecutors; attorneys; forensic psychologists; behavioral experts; substance abuse experts; and threat management experts that can help your organization navigate any threatening situation and give you peace of mind.

Kroll’s underlying threat management strategy focuses on threat actors as individuals—all with goals, ambitions, aspirations, fears, anxieties, stressors, families and friends. We seek fully informed and creative strategies that have demonstrated greater success they are based on human psychology, emotion and behavioral tendencies.

Threat Management Program Gap Assessment

For organizations who already have established workplace violence and threat management programs, Kroll’s enterprise security risk management team provides a health assessment or gap analysis to ensure these programs are operating with maximum efficacy, meeting the necessary objectives and being delivered in accordance with best practices and within the highest of standards.

Kroll has helped some of the most reputable organizations and threat management teams identify areas for growth, improve efficiencies and hone their craft—all in the interest of better protecting their organizations and people from targeted violence.

An employee (or former employee), vendor, client, customer or partner can cause serious damage to your organization, its reputation, shareholder confidence, intellectual property or standing, in strikingly little time.

Protecting an organization from the catastrophic damage caused by an insider risk requires a comprehensive and overlapping series of physical, technical, operational, cyber, cultural and administrative systems, all working in concert with one another.
