Due diligence for mergers
and acquisitions.

When acquiring an organization, there are many aspects of due diligence that should be carried out—both by law and as a matter of best practice. One of the most commonly overlooked is that of cybersecurity due diligence. But it is also one of the most important. SubRosa can ensure your company knows what it is getting with an acquisition by conducting a thorough cybersecurity analyses.

Why should you conduct due diligence for mergers and acquisitions?

The simple answer is so you know what you are buying. Purchasing a company without a solid review of its cybersecurity program and practices is likened to purchasing a car without reviewing its service history. All the bad practices, risk exposure and open liabilities should be discovered prior to close, not after. High risks and past breaches can be used to negotiate on purchase price. In the case of the 2017 breach of 500 million Yahoo accounts, this high-profile incident resulted in Verizon negotiating a $350 million price drop in their acquisition of Yahoo.
