Mergers & Acquisitions

Invest with confidence.

Quantify risk and potential liability in merger and acquisition targets.

Evaluate cybersecurity performance as part of strategic due diligence.

A comprehensive view of an M&A target company’s cyberhealth is a critical component of the vetting process prior to a merger or acquisition. Assess and understand the risks before you inherit the liability. The target’s security posture, compliance adherence, and proven ability to quickly and effectively remediate vulnerabilities must be essential elements of your M&A evaluation process. Any evidence of data breaches should be factored into purchase agreements and integration timelines before closing deals. Critical security issues translate into real consequences.
