The podcast series will highlight various hot topics in ESG and will include commentary from prominent voices within the ESG community. As we continue to expand globally, KBRA Podcasts is a go-to source for intimate briefings directly from our knowledgeable team members and guests.

Our inaugural episode focuses on cybersecurity, a prominent governance risk within the ESG framework. Bill Cox, Global Head of Corporate, Financial, and Government Ratings at KBRA interviews company Chairman and Founder, Jules Kroll, the pioneer of the modern investigations, intelligence, and corporate security industry.

“What we have today is, we have more violations of privacy, we have more stealing, we have more involvements with nation states—either directly or through proxies,” Kroll said. “That is why it feels like there is a lot more going on because there is a lot more going on.”
