Kroll Announces Appointment of Joseph Spinelli as Senior Managing Director

May 19, 2015

Former Inspector General for the State of New York Joins Kroll’s Investigations and Disputes Practice

NEW YORK – Kroll, the global leader in risk mitigation and response solutions, announced today that Joseph Spinelli has joined the company as a senior managing director in the Investigations and Disputes practice, based in New York.

“For more than three decades, Joe has built an impeccable reputation uncovering and combating white collar crime in diverse roles across both the private and public sectors,” said Manny Conti, Kroll CEO. “Joe shares Kroll’s commitment to outstanding client service and his significant expertise further strengthens Kroll’s leadership in the areas of white collar investigations, anti-bribery and corruption, risk management, monitorships, and forensic accounting.”

Most recently, Spinelli was a managing director with Navigant’s Global Investigations and Compliance practice, and served as the global leader for its FCPA and Anti-Bribery Corruption practice and co-leader of its Monitoring practice. Prior to this, he had co-founded and was chief operating officer for an investigative and compliance company, Daylight Forensic and Advisory, which was acquired by Navigant in 2010.

Previously, Spinelli was a direct-admit partner at KPMG, where he held numerous leadership roles. His contributions included founding the firm’s Forensic Accounting practice and serving as office coordinating partner for the Northeast, Public Services and as Healthcare Compliance National Forensic partner-in-charge. He led noteworthy monitorship engagements that included the post September 11Ground Zero recovery efforts at the World Trade Center and for the Diocese of Manchester, New Hampshire, child abuse case. In his 12 years with the firm, Spinelli also conducted numerous FCPA investigations in China, Korea, Philippines and Vietnam. Additionally, he has been an Independent Private Sector Inspector General for Miami-Dade County and an independent auditor for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for two stock exchanges. Before his years at KPMG, Spinelli worked for Coopers & Lybrand.

Spinelli’s earlier career in public service included eight years in the ground-breaking role of Inspector General for New York State, where he led fraud and corruption investigations for state government agencies and authorities, and assisted the states of Ohio, Pennsylvania and Louisiana in formulating their Inspector General programs. During this time, he co-authored the N.Y. State Internal Control Act of 1987, which required state agencies to conduct risk assessments as part of a proactive approach to fraud prevention. Spinelli also served as Assistant Director of Criminal Justice for the State of New York, responsible for investigating criminal complaints and fraud allegations throughout state government.

Spinelli started his career as a Special Agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, where he spent 10 years, based in both the New York and New Haven field offices, and was involved in several high-profile cases.

Throughout his career, Spinelli has served on numerous boards and commissions. These have included the Board of Regents of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, the world's largest anti-fraud organization; chairman of the New York State Commission on Public Integrity; and chairman of the Audit and Compensation Committees for the New York Racing Association Board. Spinelli received his bachelor’s degree from Ricker College and his J.D. from John Marshall Law School.

Cyber Due Diligence: Pre-Transaction Assessments Can Uncover Costly Risks


FacebookTweetGoogle PlusLinkedInE-mail
January 28, 2015February 6, 2015 | Tim Ryan and Leonard Navarro

[Cyber Due Diligence] How can you discover if an investment target is one keystroke away from a major cyber incident or data breach? How can you determine that an attacker isn’t already lurking in their network? Cyber due diligence conducted prior to investment can help identify actual or potential cyber security lapses, areas that may be at risk, quantify remediation costs and help restructure an investment should substandard cyber security systems data or latent breaches be discovered.

Tim Ryan, Kroll’s Cyber Investigations Practice Leader launched into a recent webinar discussing the significance of Due Diligence prior to any transaction.

Cyber due diligence is defined further by Tim Ryan as, “the review of the governance, processes and controls that are used to secure information assets.” He goes on, “Many in the field understand that this is not merely a technical issue, that governance plays a very large role in IT security and enterprises today.”

In the webinar, the former FBI agent, lawyer and professor stressed the basic importance of cyber due diligence in your potential M&A transaction by asking simple questions from a qualitative and quantitative view point. Inquiring about pre-transaction testing of current software and systems running in an enterprise can uncover known malware, suspected malware, vulnerable or outdated software, and unrestricted use of dangerous tools often co-opted by hackers.

“We understand due diligence in the regular acquisition and merger process that normally goes on the marketplace. Cyber though, should be an added step because it’s a risk, like any other risk, that may devalue the deal” The benefit to investors in being able to quantify any potential cyber remediation costs, as well as the benefit to sellers being able to strengthen their attractiveness to investors makes cyber due diligence a necessary step in your acquisition or sales process. Ryan stressed further that sellers need to remember that latent cyber issues or shortfalls can appear at crucial times during a sale, “Even if you’re not required to do it right now, in the next eighteen months they are going to be required to do it, so you might as well take this problem off the board right now.”

The forty-minute webinar details the intrusion methodology used by sophisticated attackers and gives viewers an understanding of the nature of intrusions and the potential pervasiveness within an enterprise.  If you are approaching a merger, acquisition or basic need to know what to address in your negotiation, the simple questions and thoughts addressed by Ryan shed light on the costly risks of a lacking cyber due diligence component.
