Frequently Asked Questions
What is Enterprise Security Risk Management (ESRM), and how can it help my organization best address risks, threats and vulnerabilities?
ESRM is a strategic program management methodology that uses globally established and accepted risk management principles to tie an organization’s security practice directly to its mission and goals. ESRM identifies at-risk assets across the entire enterprise, considering various aspects of the business, including people, processes, intellectual property, technology and reputation.
The ESRM approach recognizes that security is not an isolated, compartmentalized or tactical issue, but a unique type of risk that requires specialization to understand and manage. This critical consideration needs to be woven into the fabric of the entire organization to truly address those items that pose the most significant risks. By adopting ESRM, businesses can better understand their security risks, make informed decisions to protect their assets and respond effectively to potential incidents or breaches.
How does Kroll help established global security departments?
We provide mature global security departments with additional bandwidth to augment their security capabilities. When these departments face security- or threat-related issues that exceed their capacities, our experts serve as additional staffing to mitigate these issues. Our team comprises subject-matter experts from various disciplines, including former security department leads from Fortune 300 companies who have the knowledge and expertise required to conduct a global security plan review.
In conducting our review, our experts assess all functions of a security department, including resourcing, headcount, staffing and functionality. We review what’s working efficiently and what needs improvement. We help our clients truly understand how their global security systems function and make recommendations to improve their overall posture.
How does Kroll help growing security departments achieve their goals?
Our enterprise security risk management team provides subject-matter expertise across all security and threat disciplines and works with organizations of various sizes, including smaller organizations who have grown their security departments in a short period of time. We serve as the safety valve and sounding board, allowing departments to gain expertise without having to spend time and resources on recruitment and onboarding. We help departments define their ultimate safety and security goals and break them down into the individual components of success.
How does Kroll help resource-constrained organizations maintain duty of care requirements?
Oftentimes, budget constraints don’t allow for an increased headcount. For clients facing real and imminent problems that require security, we offer outsourced experience and guidance and serve as a member of the client’s staff only until the risk is mitigated and the project is completed. Moreover, we are always available when our clients need us in the future and can rely upon past experience to provide expeditious and enhanced guidance.
How can Kroll help understand the safety and security environment in complex geopolitical environments?
We pride ourselves on having a robust group of professionals with global experience. Our experts have served in the military, intelligence, the FBI and foreign service communities. We leverage our experience to help clients understand the undercurrent of geopolitics, bi-lateral and multinational relationships that may impact the safety and security of their brands and people.
How can Kroll help my mature global executive protection program?
We work with some of the largest clients with mature global executive protection programs around the world to provide consulting and advisory services. When our clients make programmatic changes to their protection programs, we help them understand the nuances of those changes and assist them in areas of the world where they may not have as much expertise. We review their operational protocols, augment their internal capabilities and refine their intent with the program. We highlight industry-leading practices and identify blind spots before they are exploited by an adversary, or any harm befalls their organization.
What does Kroll do to support clients experiencing bankruptcy, insolvency or restructuring?
In the weeks and months preceding a bankruptcy, restructuring or downsizing, we help our clients heighten the security environment around the company. Layoffs and downsizing increase security risks as employees faced with the loss of employment may take steps to lash out at the company. With over 50 years of experience in the field, our team helps organizations going through these processes understand their security posture and the importance of messaging and de-escalation.
As we get closer to the day of the bankruptcy announcement or reductions in force, we monitor social and web activity to identify groups of people who may be actively conspiring against the organization. We protect the organization from any future harm by equipping them with information and physical on-the-ground security.
