Cybersecurity for Mergers and Acquisitions is a mess. There are a surprising number of significant unforeseen risks that can wreak havoc on M&A deals. In this week’s fireside chat, I am joined by Justin Daniels, General Counsel/Cybersecurity/Data Protection SME at Baker Donelson, and Alex Rayter, Principal at Phoenix 2.0 Inc, to discuss the due diligence, risks, and recommendations to better understand and manage the challenges.
I spent several years involved with Intel Corp. M&A projects, led the cybersecurity team, and built the processes to evaluate and manage cyber risks. Justin and Alex are currently working to help clients understand the challenges and deal with the repercussions. In our chat, we share our insights, experiences and provide insights to how acquiring companies should carefully maneuver.
Let us know your experiences and if your organization is taking cybersecurity seriously when dealing with mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures.
