Companies Join Forces to Help Clients Reduce Likelihood of Data Breach and Mitigate Reputational Harm from an Incident
Strategic communications firm FleishmanHillard and risk management firm Kroll Inc. announced the formation of a strategic alliance that combines their respective areas of expertise to deliver client services focused on cybersecurity and data breach risk mitigation. Kroll’s role in the alliance will focus on enterprise network security and threat detection, incident investigation and response, and notification of consumers impacted by a breach. FleishmanHillard will provide strategic communications, crisis management and reputation recovery services.
The alliance was formed to meet the steadily growing demand from companies of all sizes for advanced, cyber-related preparatory services. It is focused on serving organizations that have not experienced a data breach or cyberattack and helping them prevent one from occurring. Should a breach occur, the alliance will also provide investigation, remediation and crisis management services.
The FleishmanHillard-Kroll alliance will also work with companies on advance preparedness to ensure they are equipped with the right technologies and processes, as well as a customized communications plan, to enable them to respond rapidly and effectively, should a breach occur.
