When sensitive information is compromised by malicious software, knowing how it works and what it’s capable of doing is crucial to an effective incident response.

Malicious software attacks that succeed in infiltrating a company’s network pose a strong threat to commercial and public sector interests. At Kroll, we help organizations identify and analyze suspected malware to determine exactly what it was – or was not – capable of doing.

Understanding the Threat From Viruses and Spyware

No antivirus or anti-malware product can identify and stop 100 percent of malicious code from penetrating or activating inside your IT network. If you suspect malware caused a data breach or other information security incident, it is vital to quickly understand the scope of the malware impact on your systems and identify any data loss. The only true way to do this is to look at the machine language code inside the malware. Most hackers use sophisticated software to make it hard to get to the actual code; they may even throw a layer of encryption into the equation. But it is possible to uncover that code to provide insight into the exact nature and scope of a breach incident. Kroll has developed solutions to quickly detect, analyze, and inactivate malware viruses.
