Threat Assessment 

A threat assessment is often the first step to support corporate advisory and restructuring clients. This assessment covers potential threats to parties that may be viewed as responsible for the restructuring or insolvency activities, such as company leadership and advisory teams. The threat assessment may entail a review of the senior management teams’ media and social media profiles to identify any physical or business-related threats. This can evolve into risk monitoring throughout the project, allowing us to track issues and identify trigger points to activate risk management activity. 

 

Security Plan

A security plan is then provided which details actions or activities recommended to enable a safe and secure working environment and the protection of assets. This can be done dynamically prior to any business change or after an initial message is delivered to the workforce and stakeholders. The security plan provides risk management options and actions to the client business and its advisors, alongside the associated costs.

Kroll can remotely assess an organization’s security posture before deployment to help inform our security plan in circumstances where this approach is required. Once deployed, Kroll conducts an updated assessment of the company’s security measures, including physical, technical and operational procedures. This assessment allows Kroll to determine the safety of the working environment and security of the business information.
