Kroll, a division of Duff & Phelps, a global leader in risk mitigation, investigations, compliance, cyber resilience, security and incident response solutions, today announced that its Cyber Risk practice has been named a Pacesetter in the management consulting segment of the ALM Intelligence Pacesetter Research: Cybersecurity Services 2020 thanks to its ability to deliver end-to-end cyber risk management solutions to clients worldwide.
This year’s recognition follows Kroll’s recognition as a Vanguard Leader in The ALM Vanguard: Cybersecurity Consulting 2019, reinforcing the impact of Kroll’s end-to-end cyber risk solutions in an increasingly complex cyber security environment that demands rapid response, actionable intelligence and effective governance. In the 2020 report, Kroll is acknowledged as unique among the Pacesetter cohort “for a business model focused on maintaining an elite team of security professionals” that are “fully engaged in helping clients coordinate the services within their broad ecosystem of law firms, insurance providers and managed security services providers.” Kroll also earned high marks for its “global, end-to-end cyber risk offering that supports the entire incident lifecycle: incident response, notification, monitoring and proactive services.”
“The current environment underpins the need for organizations to build a defensible security strategy able to adjust to massive change while empowering the business to continue delivering value. With organizational, political and criminal activity swinging wildly, security and risk leaders can’t afford to be seen as obstacles but instead as enablers of business,” said Jason Smolanoff, Kroll’s Global Cyber Risk Practice Leader. “Clients benefit from our five-pillar framework of governance, infrastructure and standards, policies and procedures, people and training, and relationships, which expands security beyond technology solutions to embed not only higher standards but more flexibility and redundancy into everyday operations.”
“Kroll’s leadership shines when clients face the most complex security challenges, from compliance, privacy and risk, remote work, staff augmentation and insider threats to intellectual property and reputational threats,” said Andrew Beckett, EMEA Leader in Kroll’s Cyber Risk practice. “We’re proud to be recognized once again by ALM Intelligence.”
ALM Intelligence Pacesetter Research takes a uniquely customer-centric view of the professional services marketplace by analyzing the comparative strengths and weaknesses of providers across multiple disciplines, enabling buyers to make better-informed decisions and providers to better understand their increasingly dynamic competitive landscape. ALM Pacesetters are identified and selected by a panel of experts, including general counsel, procurement, external professionals and academics, and internal ALM representatives.
