The deal’s not closed until you know their cyber security risks too.
When merging with or acquiring a company, you also acquire their risks. And cyber risks have also emerged as a leading threat to private equity investments. Risks can include an insecure network, compromised assets, or risk for current or historical non-compliance. Do you know, for example, if stolen company or customer information of the target company is being sold on the dark web? How secure is the flagship software application you are acquiring? And does the company actually own all the software it is selling? You need a risk assessment that goes beyond ﬁnancials and evaluates your overall cyber security posture.
How We Help
We conduct cyber due diligence to identify potential threats to the value of your investment, giving you the insight you need to make sound decisions. Pre-deal, we perform a cyber security assessment to help gauge risk. We assess your target’s cyber risks and vulnerabilities while adhering to your deal time frame and creating a cyber risk proﬁle that informs a 100-day, post-close remediation plan. Post-deal, we can assist with the implementation of remediation as a condition of closing or mitigate risk through deal-speciﬁc insurance products. When software is involved, we evaluate it for vulnerabilities.
