M&A cyber due diligence

Connect with us

Businesses undergoing mergers and acquisitions must complete rigorous due diligence to uncover and remediate concerns about the security posture of their merger/acquisition targets. They must also estimate post-deal security investment requirements.

Evaluate risk throughout the merger or acquisition process

Our proven approach

During the due diligence phase, we provide a rapid cybersecurity risk assessment that rates the maturity of the organization’s risk management, security organization and technology, third-party risk, cyber breach preparation, and more. The duration of the assessment is flexible based on the situation – but typically involves a two-to-four-week engagement that evaluates the acquisition’s IT environment and cyber risk levels across critical security dimensions.

The service is the ideal companion to our external penetration testing service, a best-practice strategy in which you’ll gain an independent view of what the acquisition target looks like to an attacker.

Post-deal

We provide design and implementation support to integrate or extract an organization while ensuring appropriate security controls and governance processes are in place.

  • Our industry-leading practitioners can design required capabilities to manage risk, create new solutions, and establish new organizational approaches and governance models.
  • We partner with you, as needed, throughout the implementation process with advisory services that can help with architecture design, vendor/product selection, and general implementation support.
