Incident Response and Litigation Support

Kroll’s elite security leaders deliver rapid responses for over 2,000 incidents per year and have the resources and expertise to support the entire incident lifecycle, including litigation demands. Gain peace of mind in a crisis.

No matter the type of data loss or cybercrime, Kroll has the experience and resources (human and technology) to move quickly, to discern, isolate and secure valuable relevant data and investigate the digital trail, wherever it may lead. For example, in the case of malicious insiders, we can combine computer forensic expertise with traditional investigative methodology, including interviews and surveillance, to retrace the behavior of people who may have had access to protected or proprietary information.

In the event of digital attacks, such as malware, ransomware or an email account compromise, Kroll’s cyber investigation teams can collect and examine physical and digital evidence to uncover important information, such as where, when and how an incident occurred—and if systems are still at risk. We will determine what data was compromised and whether digital evidence was erased or modified. We will also work with your teams to recover data, whenever possible, and recreate events and exchanges so that you have an accurate diagnosis to develop an effective recovery plan.


“With the rising concerns of ransomware and intrusions that leverage data exfiltration, Kroll’s incident response teams have not only the experience to properly investigate the many aspects of risk to data, but also the technical understanding of how to properly contain the threat and eject active actors from compromised networks.” - Devon Ackerman, Managing Director, Head of Incident Response, North America
