Evolution of Legal Management Consulting practice highlights greater demand for end-to-end information governance solutions
April 19, 2021 – Kroll, the world’s premier provider of services and digital products related to governance, risk and transparency, today announced the launch of its Information Management and Governance practice, an evolution of the firm’s Legal Management Consulting services. The practice brings together Kroll’s extensive experience in legal operations, data privacy, eDiscovery and contract management to help clients increase operational effectiveness, strengthen regulatory compliance and reduce cyber security risks.
Stricter compliance requirements and the large-scale adoption of remote working have expanded the need for more efficient information governance controls at organizations worldwide. The launch of Kroll’s Information Management and Governance practice is a recognition of the acceleration of digital transformation efforts across an entire enterprise, spanning from legal departments to finance, HR, business development, procurement and IT teams seeking to meet growing demands for efficiency, compliance, and risk and cost mitigation.
Hassan El Asraoui, Managing Director and Global Head of the Information Management and Governance practice, commented: “Information governance is a cross-departmental effort. Our goal is to support legal, risk and functional leaders in implementing scalable, robust information governance frameworks to meet compliance needs while gaining operational effectiveness. Leveraging our global expertise, relationships and breadth of technical capabilities, our team of professionals helps clients meet their strategic goals, including the use of data to drive faster, more informed and holistic decision-making.”
The expansion of Kroll’s project management office (PMO), which set the foundation for navigating complicated cross-departmental efforts and delivering results on time and within budget, became a benchmark of the Information Management and Governance practice launch. The practice’s PMO brings together and builds upon Kroll’s extensive relationships with technology providers and existing legal management, cyber risk and compliance services to handle all aspects of information governance, from advisory to implementation to managed services.
