Effective information security governance starts with well-informed decisions and the framework to meet new challenges. Kroll’s well-rounded leaders can help your organization with unique insights on cyber risks and practical support.

Cyber governance involves making multiple decisions that will guide your organization through 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 what to prioritize and where to bolster resources is often not a clear-cut choice. 

Kroll’s expertise managing thousands of cyber security engagements worldwide, backed by the diverse backgrounds of our experts from law enforcement, government agencies and large enterprises helped build the framework for a defensible cyber security strategy in five pillars:
