Program Content: Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) can be a great value generator for companies. However, M&A is a challenging transformation that requires careful consideration across all stages of execution – prior, during and post sign-off on the deal. While most companies consider cybersecurity during the due-diligence phase, in the pursuit of deal completion, cybersecurity ends up taking a back seat. This can be quite an expensive mistake and one that can significantly impact the deal valuations. With the deals market gaining momentum post the pandemic slowdown, it is advisable to have a cybersecurity blueprint in place to compliment M&A as a strategy for growth. Join Grant Thornton on Tuesday, June 15 to hear how to prioritize cybersecurity efforts across the deal lifecycle.

  • The impact of poor cybersecurity on deals and security hotspots
