Cybersecurity M&A Due Diligence is a critical and often overlooked aspect in the process of evaluating whether to go forward with a merger or acquisition, and whether to engage with a new partner or vendor. Data security is integral to ensuring the integrity of every organization’s operations and reputation. Assessing cybersecurity risks can be as important in evaluating deal value and terms as more commonly investigated factors, such as the quality of earnings, customers, and employees. Cybersecurity M&A Due Diligence when performed properly can help minimize risk, reduce costs, and identify potential deal-breakers.
