  • Next Generation Data Breach Response: Preparing Your C-Suite and Board
    Next Generation Data Breach Response: Preparing Your C-Suite and Board King & Spalding, Rite Aid, and Kroll Recorded: Dec 8 2016 58 mins
    In today’s complex and ever-changing security landscape, every C-Suite and Board knows of cyber risk, but what does it really mean to be prepared to respond to a data breach incident? Top executives do not have to become cyber security experts, but they must make sure their organization’s breach response plans and strategies are defined and set. While they will not directly lead technical, legal and notification efforts to address data breaches, they do need to act as internal champions of proper planning and prevention.

    Identifying and closing security gaps, directing communication channels, and developing and regularly testing incident response plans are as important now as managing any other business risk or concern. Therefore, company leadership must take charge and direct their organizations to conduct extensive preparation efforts to mitigate those risks and make certain everyone stands ready to execute against the established procedures and policies when a breach occurs.
    In this webinar, you will hear from experts who have been on the inside and outside of data breach response efforts. You will learn:

    •Why the C-Suite and Board need to champion planning and prevention efforts.
    •How to get Executive buy-in.
    •Ways to build stronger response structures from the top.
    •How to construct response architectures. Who needs to be responsible for what?
    •Cyber Risk – What are the latest threats and what does the C-Suite and Board need to understand?
    •Developing and directing an Incident Response Plan: Where do the C-Suite and Board fit in?
    •Examples our experts have seen – the good and the bad

    Spotlight Asia – Investing in India’s Growth Story Reshmi Khurana, Kroll’s Managing Director and Head of South Asia, and Tarun Bhatia, Managing Director at Kroll Recorded: Oct 19 2016 69 mins
    India remains an attractive destination for foreign investors as its economic fundamentals and optimism about its prospects remain strong. From a macroeconomic perspective, India is one of the fastest growing major emerging markets, with recent projections from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) pointing to a fiscal growth of 7.4% versus a 6.6% expansion in China for 2016. Politically, it is more stable than in previous cycles, with the BJP led government initiating a number of reforms and regulatory measures that are instilling economic confidence and raising India’s attractiveness as a destination for FDI. The country’s demographics are equally promising: India is home to 18% of the world’s working-age population (ages 15-64), a growing middle class with increasing purchasing power and a corporate sector that is flexing its muscle domestically and globally.

    Join Kroll’s team as they share the shifting dynamics of investing in India, replete with both risks and rich rewards at every turn. It includes an in-depth commentary by Reshmi Khurana, Kroll’s Managing Director and Head of South Asia, and Tarun Bhatia, Managing Director at Kroll, who will discuss the most urgent risks of cross-border deal-making, offering insights on conducting pre-transactional due diligence on
  • What Does a World-Class Compliance Program for Endowments Look Like?
    What Does a World-Class Compliance Program for Endowments Look Like? Michael Lukasek, CPA, Managing Director, Office of Investments, University of Pennsylvania Recorded: Jul 15 2016 55 mins
    In 2015, charitable donations to colleges and universities reached an all-time high of $40.3 billion. As university endowments seek greater returns in a diverse international marketplace, the challenges from investing in funds in high-risk jurisdictions increase exponentially.

    Join Kroll Associate Managing Director John Arvanitis and guest Michael A. Lukasek, CPA, Managing Director of the University of Pennsylvania’s Office of Investments, to discuss how to build a world-class compliance program for endowments. Participants in this webinar will gain insights into topics including:

    Best practices for vetting and engaging with investments and fund managers in high-risk jurisdictions.
    How to establish protocols in preparation for the compliance requirements of the changing regulatory environment.

    Three reasons why you join us on July 15

    1. Regulatory regimes around the world are evolving and expanding. Higher education endowments must ensure compliance with not only all federal and state laws, but increasingly, foreign regulations as well.
    2. Recently, a number of legislative proposals have been advanced that seek to regulate endowment activity and revoke tax-exempt status, leading to heightened scrutiny of and public visibility into endowments and their activities.
    3. Expanding into high-return but high-risk jurisdictions can also intensify reputational risks to institutions.

    Vietnam: Risks and opportunities in Asia’s next emerging market Richard Dailly, Managing Director at Kroll and Giles Cooper, Partner, and Manfred Otto, Associate at Duane Morris Recorded: May 11 2016 89 mins
    Vietnam continues to be a major foreign direct investment destination in Asia Pacific. The country has positive macro-economic factors demonstrated by its solid and continued GDP growth, a number of free trade agreements, improving infrastructure and a young demographic and low labor costs which has encouraged businesses to relocate there. However, there remain a number of potential uncertainties and risks for inbound investors given the new government administration following the Communist Party of Vietnam’s 12th National Congress in January. The geo-political situation around the South China Sea is also an issue for those operating in Vietnam, and limitations in obtaining information and disclosures can present challenges to parties executing transactions.

    Join Kroll and Duane Morris to learn about the risks and opportunities offered by Vietnam. Richard Dailly, Managing Director at Kroll, Giles Cooper, Partner, and Manfred Otto, Associate at Duane Morris will share more about Vietnam as an investment destination, what the legal and political risks are of doing business there and how the new administration and free trade agreements could affect inward foreign investment. They will also address the complexities of running a business in Vietnam, reviewing operational risks from investigations Kroll has conducted, Duane Morris's experiences with respect to due diligence of Vietnamese partners, compliant and workable solutions.
  • Ransomware
    Ransomware Jonathan Fairtlough, Managing Director, Kroll, and Brett Williams, Senior Regional Security Engineer, Carbon Black Recorded: Mar 10 2016 62 mins
    How to defend against digital hijack of your business data, and what to do if you get hit

    Cyber criminals have discovered the perfect tool to force modern business owners into the vice of extortion – drop malware onto an unsuspecting network to encrypt all the data and demand payment to provide the key to unlock the data. The attacked business has two choices; either lose access to years of data or pay a ransom to get the data back. The cyber criminals bank on the fact that businesses will pay to rescue their hijacked data.

    Such attacks or ransomware are on the rise, fuelled by successful extortion payments. The types of businesses being targeted are expanding, and the delivery methods used to infect systems are becoming increasingly sophisticated. There are also many different types of malware now available; Crypto Wall also known as Crowti, Crypto Locker, FakeBSOD and The FBI scam.

    Preparation is essential to surviving such attacks and monitoring of systems is needed to prevent them.

    Spotlight on Bangladesh Reshmi Khurana, Kroll, Managing Director Recorded: Feb 18 2016 66 mins
    Making it Big in Bangladesh: Do Business Prospects and Opportunities outweigh Political and Security Risks for firms?

    Why Bangladesh?
    In the current global scenario – plagued by economic slowdown and unrest, India and South Asia have emerged as one of the brighter spots for investment, stability and business growth. Bangladesh represents the new South Asia with its consistent GDP growth, its pivotal location between India, China and Southeast Asia, a thriving business environment, young aspirational population, a stable democratic government and competitive costs. However, Bangladesh also poses several serious questions to investors. These are concerns around terrorism, security, infrastructure, political rivalry, money laundering, large-scale corruption, corporate governance and operational challenges of doing business in the country.

    The webinar will discuss whether Bangladesh is a stable and favourable country to conduct business in, what are the business risks, opportunities and regulatory issues involved and whether the reporting on security challenges and business concerns is obsessive or justified. How can businesses be smart and successful in doing business in Bangladesh?
  • Investigating human trafficking in supply chains
    Investigating human trafficking in supply chains Richard Dailly, Kroll Managing Director Recorded: Jan 27 2016 52 mins
    Identifying social compliance issues, particularly forced labor and human trafficking in supply chains, continues to be a significant problem for business, particularly when sourcing from opaque and non-transparent emerging markets. Civil society is playing a large part in increasing awareness and pressuring politicians to introduce and enforce legislation, and is gradually highlighting the issue as a problem which needs to be addressed both by governments and the business community.

    Kroll has been researching and working on this issue for a number of years and believes that businesses should be taking the issue as seriously as other forms of compliance.
