Risk assessment: identifying the intent of threatening e-mails

Stroz Friedberg is a specialized risk management firm built to help clients solve the complex challenges prevalent in today’s digital, connected, and regulated business world

When outside counsel to a public company received e-mails threatening physical harm from a former employee who had been denied whistleblower status, Stroz Friedberg responded immediately with a multi-disciplinary team that was able to provide an accurate risk assessment. This team monitored the situation over several months of ongoing communications from the former employee, and guided the client on how to manage the situation. The team consisted of a behavioral psychologist, who is a former CIA profiler and analyzed the changing emotional state of the former employee; private investigators, who uncovered background information from multiple countries bearing on whether the former employee was capable of carrying out his threats; and coordination by an engagement manager with deep experience in conducting complex criminal investigations. Compliance with the advice given by this expert team resolved the situation with no further incident.
