Protecting your next investment: The importance of cybersecurity due diligence



With the increase in cyber risks, investors in private equity should consider mandating cybersecurity to be a vital part of M&A due diligence. This means not only illuminating an organization’s IT systems but also reviewing other risks associated with a poorly managed cybersecurity program, inadequate awareness among employees and weak access controls, especially surrounding third-party access.

In this webinar, we discuss the risks associated with weak cybersecurity, the importance of a cybersecurity assessment when completing due diligence prior to acquiring a business, and how to protect your investment through proper cybersecurity management after the transaction is complete.

Key learning objectives:

  • Identify the risks associated with weak cybersecurity
  • Define the assessment scope of cybersecurity for an acquisition target
  • Illustrate how organizations can protect their investments and manage cybersecurity risks once a transaction is complete

Who should watch?

  • Private equity professionals involved in transaction execution and integration
  • IT audit professionals
  • Information technology executives, directors and managers
  • Information security executives, directors and managers
  • Senior management, IT or finance professionals involved in overseeing or managing cybersecurity risk, processes, policies and/or controls
