Effective information security governance requires sufficient background information to make educated decisions and a practical framework for responding to new challenges. Kroll’s well-rounded leaders offer unique insights and practical support to help clients mitigate cyber risks.

Sound cyber governance involves making multiple decisions to determine how an organization will respond to current and future challenges. Understanding cyber threats from a technology standpoint is certainly key, but security leaders and senior management must also consider a host of financial and operational aspects, including regulatory and reputational concerns. Knowing how to prioritize and where to direct resources is often not a clear-cut choice. 

Kroll’s team of cyber experts – with diverse experience and backgrounds – manage thousands of cyber security engagements worldwide and helped establish the framework for a defensible cyber security strategy in five pillars:
