Kroll announces co-operation agreement with Swedish firm Tempest Security AB

Risk mitigation, compliance, cyber resilience and security specialist Kroll has announced a new co-operation agreement with Sweden-based Tempest Security AB whereby the business will provide cyber risk solutions to Tempest’s clients across Scandinavia and around the world.

“Kroll is very pleased to be working with Tempest Security, which shares our firm’s strong commitment to providing organisations with the solutions they need to build more resilient information security defences and achieve greater cyber maturity,” explained Andrew Beckett, managing director and Kroll’s cyber risk leader for EMEA. “We look forward to assisting Tempest Security’s clients across diverse industries with end-to-end services that leverage findings from Kroll’s global work on thousands of cyber security events every year.”

Andrew Spry, CEO at Tempest Security, responded: “As the fastest-growing Swedish security firm, we at Tempest Security understand that cyber security challenges are among the most critical and complex issues confronting clients today, and especially so given that threats can emanate from many directions. On behalf of our clients and colleagues, we’re excited to make available the elite cyber security capabilities of Kroll, which adds another vital dimension to the security support we provide to clients globally.”

Through the Tempest Security Operations Centre, Tempest Security’s Scandinavian clients will now be able to access Kroll’s wide-ranging cyber security expertise and portfolio of cyber security solutions including cyber policy revision and development, incident response, investigations, computer forensics and breach notification, penetration testing and security audits and cyber advisory services.
