April 22, 2015

American International Group recently announced that it has acquired a minority stake in K2 Intelligence, an investigative consultancy. The companies have agreed to co-develop products and services that support AIG’s efforts to help clients mitigate and manage their cyber risk, and to explore opportunities in other key industry segments.

K2 Intelligence was founded in 2009 by Jeremy Kroll, K2 Intelligence’s CEO, and Jules Kroll, considered to be the originator of the modern corporate investigations industry.

Based in New York, K2 Intelligence has approximately 300 employees with global operations in London, Madrid, and Tel Aviv. K2 Intelligence acts as advisor to governments, companies, boards and individuals.

The company’s expertise centers on cyber investigations and defense, anti-money laundering and regulatory compliance, complex investigations and disputes, data analytics and visualization and integrity monitoring and compliance. This expertise may benefit AIG clients as they manage risks associated with cybersecurity, construction projects, M&A transactions, global real estate transactions, liability exposures in higher education and personal insurance needs.

K2 Intelligence’s cyber investigations and defense capabilities include intelligence, incident response, defense strategy, executive training, assessments and due diligence, all of which rely on web-based and human intelligence gathering techniques.
