Kroll Recognized as Cyber Security Vanguard Leader by ALM

New York – 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 recognized as a Vanguard Leader for the first time in The ALM Vanguard: Cybersecurity Consulting 2019, surpassing some of the world’s leading cyber security consulting providers. The award recognizes Kroll’s end-to-end cyber risk solutions fueled by deep expertise and depth of services.

“There is no single approach or factor in an effective cyber security program, so we help clients based on five pillars: governance, infrastructure and standards, policies and procedures, people and training, and relationships. This provides a framework to stay ahead of the curve in a complex digital economy and drives competitive advantage for our clients,” said Jason Smolanoff, Kroll’s Global Cyber Risk Practice Leader. “Clients also benefit from our seamless response capabilities, which helps shorten the entire incident lifecycle, with investigation, remediation, notification, monitoring and restoration under a single agreement, something no other cyber security provider is able to match.”

Kroll works diligently with regulators and clients to create a defensible security narrative, often handling some of the most complex cyber investigations in the world. Compliance, privacy and risk, cloud migration and staff augmentation, and virtual Chief Information Security Officers are the main drivers for the firm, which follows a growing market demand for proactive solutions as cyber security continues to become an integral component of every organization globally. 

Andrew Beckett, Managing Director and EMEA Leader in Kroll’s Cyber Risk practice, commented: “We’re proud to be leaders in the market in terms of our ability to create value for clients by merging Kroll’s deep expertise and state-of-the-art technology into our suite of cyber security solutions like Kroll’s CyberDetectER DarkWeb, Kroll Responder and the Kroll Artifact Parser and Extractor (KAPE).”
