Secure M&A Process using Business Software
One of the most difficult aspects of any M&A is integrating a significant number of new employees and getting them operational with minimal disruption. Ineffective onboarding can result in a drop in productivity and a high rate of turnover following an M&A.
During the M&A, IT teams are required to integrate users of both systems seamlessly without introducing security gaps and compromising data integrity. The problem is even more difficult when integrating workers from acquired companies who are using their own devices or third-party applications, such as cloud-based services or social media.
Cybersecurity professionals need to tackle these challenges by integrating themselves into M&A processes from the beginning and ensuring they have visibility over all moving parts. This includes the post-merger integration stage and due diligence assessment. It is imperative that CISOs approach M&As with a servant-like attitude and present cybersecurity risks in a way that executives understand. This involves avoiding technical terminology and presenting metrics that executives can relate to.
Our M&A solution lets you monitor and manage the M&A processes from a single dashboard. The dashboard displays all conversations, events as well as documents in real-time. You can modify the software to meet your specific needs by configuring fields, lists, and reports. We’ve also integrated features such as two-factor authentication, audit logs and security controls to ensure compliance with policies and security controls.
