Threat management is a comprehensive process by which threats are received, investigated, assessed and researched and all mitigation and intervention options are carefully considered.
Whether you’re faced with a known individual or an anonymous threat actor, our experts can help. Our multidisciplinary threat management team comprises former federal, state and local law enforcement officials; federal prosecutors; attorneys; forensic psychologists; behavioral experts; substance abuse experts; and threat management experts that can help your organization navigate any threatening situation and give you peace of mind.
Kroll’s underlying threat management strategy focuses on threat actors as individuals—all with goals, ambitions, aspirations, fears, anxieties, stressors, families and friends. We seek fully informed and creative strategies that have demonstrated greater success they are based on human psychology, emotion and behavioral tendencies.
Threat Management Program Gap Assessment
For organizations who already have established workplace violence and threat management programs, Kroll’s enterprise security risk management team provides a health assessment or gap analysis to ensure these programs are operating with maximum efficacy, meeting the necessary objectives and being delivered in accordance with best practices and within the highest of standards.
Kroll has helped some of the most reputable organizations and threat management teams identify areas for growth, improve efficiencies and hone their craft—all in the interest of better protecting their organizations and people from targeted violence.

Our multidisciplinary team of global threat management experts can assist with any threatening situation affecting your organization or personnel.

Insider Risk Advisory/Insider Threat Response
An organization’s workforce is oftentimes its most valuable asset and its greatest risk and vulnerability. An employee (or former employee), vendor, client, customer or partner can cause serious damage to your organization, its reputation, shareholder confidence, intellectual property or standing, in strikingly little time.
Protecting an organization from the catastrophic damage caused by an insider risk requires a comprehensive and overlapping series of physical, technical, operational, cyber, cultural and administrative systems, all working in concert with one another. Kroll’s experts have built and maintained some of the most sophisticated insider risk programs in government and private corporations around the globe and are prepared to leverage their skills, experience and knowledge to safeguard your organization and its people.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Kroll’s threat management methodology, and why should I trust Kroll?
Kroll’s methodology regarding threat management and workplace violence is simple. We take an all-hazards approach to threat management, threat monitoring and protecting clients from all sources of threats. This includes internal threats (e.g., workplace violence, disgruntled former employee, estranged colleague, etc.), external threats (e.g., domestic violence, targeted criminal activity, stalking) and cyber threats (e.g., denial of service, industrial espionage, network penetrations).
I have a team trained in the tenets of modern threat management, but I am dealing with a threat matter that exceeds our capabilities. Can Kroll help?
Our enterprise security risk management team often works with savvy clients and partners who are burdened with modern-day threat management. We have a deep bench of global threat management experts, including forensic psychiatrists and criminal psychologists, who can truly understand modern-day grievances and the causes that lead a person to enter the pathway of violence. Many of our clients come to Kroll when they’re out of bandwidth; we help stop the threat in its tracks by engaging in current and relevant threat management tactics.
What is the “pathway to violence,” and how can Kroll help my organization prepare for its impact on workplace violence preparedness?
The "pathway to violence" is a term used to describe the series of steps or stages that an individual may go through leading up to engaging in violent behavior. An individual seldom recognizes they’re on a pathway that may end in violence, but there are often red flag indicators observable to others that the person is struggling.
Kroll’s proprietary assessment software, psychology experts, and in-house team provide a comprehensive methodology to assess violent behavior, escalate for professional opinion as necessary, implement temporary security measures and document the duty of care protocols needed.
