Kroll specializes in immediately and swiftly safeguarding your most valuable assets—your people, property and brand or reputation—from threats of any kind, utilizing expert practitioners, advanced technology solutions and proven strategy. Kroll works with you to identify your organization’s vulnerabilities, discusses the most likely means by which you may be exploited and how you may be targeted in the future by those who may intend to inflict harm. Our goal is to provide clients the peace of mind to focus on their business and control the narrative of their organization.

Kroll leverages our global presence and long history of success in providing a wealth of experience to corporate clients, law firm and insurance partners, family offices and private clients, educational institutions and non-profit organizations, among others.

Disgruntled former employees, anonymous threat actors, angry clients or customers, bomb threats, infatuated stalkers, workplace violence, corporate espionage, threats of extortion and many other issues pose a threat to individuals and organizations every day. Threats often appear without overt warning. Kroll has the breadth of resources and expertise to analyze risks, identify threat actors or suspects, develop intervention and mitigation strategies and ultimately help you manage and resolve a wide variety of security issues.

Case Study – Wholistic National Organization Threat Management

Kroll conducts all aspects of threat management for a client organization that’s involved in daily political dialogue and regularly receives a tremendous amount of threatening material from opposition groups and dangerous and capable organizations.

Kroll actively monitors for threatening communications and highlights terroristic threats to local law enforcement, the U.S. Secret Service, FBI and others, when warranted. Throughout our engagement(s), Kroll counsels the client on how to navigate their elevated threat environment, mitigate known and reasonably perceivable threats and safeguard their people. 

Kroll routinely works with this client to bolster security based on escalations and acutely developing threat instances while providing higher-level strategic guidance for future planning and prioritization.
