The quality and breadth of our services have been recognized by top publications and independent review organizations, including Gartner, Forrester Wave and National Law Journal Best of Surveys. For added flexibility, Kroll offers client-friendly notification retainers that include an array of proactive services to ensure clients get tangible value.
We understand how different industries, especially highly regulated ones, have distinct notification obligations and varying risk levels. Our breach notification specialists have assisted clients in countless industries in wide range of jurisdictions. They work closely with clients’ in-house counsel to draft data breach notices and ensure messages are timely, cost-effective and appropriate to the sensitivity of the data and audience involved.
If sending notification letters isn’t preferred or possible, Kroll provides assistance with alternative notification methods. Our specialists will coordinate with legal counsel, PR agencies/communications staff, or others on a client’s response team to set up email or public notifications, whichever is appropriate under the circumstances. Kroll can also draft separate FAQ documents in multiple languages and/or build a dedicated microsite to help deliver notice to the public and, where applicable, assist in monitoring services enrollment.

Kroll Breach Notification and Identity Monitoring
Below are a select few of the notification and identity monitoring services from our team:
- Data Breach Notification
Kroll has decades of experience helping clients notify customers affected by data breaches of all sizes—from a small number of localized individuals to exposures involving millions of data subjects across multiple jurisdictions, time zones and languages. We also have unmatched expertise in rapid data cleansing, de-duplicating names, standardizing addresses, sorting special populations and return mail management, to help reduce renotification, keep down costs and demonstrate “best efforts” to better meet regulatory mandates and support legal defense.
- Call Center Services
In most cases, Kroll can set up a fully functional call center within four hours of our engagement. Our professional, multilingual customer support team will provide frontline care for affected individuals. Each member of the staff is trained to handle difficult questions and stand ready to serve the breached population. There’s no need for a company to scramble to assemble and train their own call center staff or divert internal resources to handling individual inquiries and concerns.
- Identity Theft Restoration and Consultation
Kroll offers consultation services and identity theft restoration for those affected by a breach. Kroll’s experts help impacted individuals confirm suspected ID theft and educate them on best practices to secure personal data. Cases of theft or fraud are handled by our experienced team of investigators who work cases through full restoration.
- Credit and Identity Monitoring
Kroll also offers credit and identity monitoring services to notify customers when suspicious activity is reported, including credit inquiries, new trade-lines, derogatory notices, public records and changes of address, or if personal information is found on the dark web or other sites commonly associated with suspicious activity that may indicate identity theft.
