Secure M&A Process With Business Software

Secure M&A process using Business Software

One of the biggest hurdles of any M&A is integrating a significant number of new employees and getting them up and running with minimal disruption. Ineffective onboarding can cause lower productivity and a high turnover rate following an M&A.

During the M&A process, IT teams must integrate users from both systems in an efficient manner without causing security vulnerabilities and compromising data integrity of the acquired company. Onboarding acquired workers using their own devices, or third-party apps like cloud-based and social media services is a major challenge.

Cybersecurity professionals must tackle these challenges by integrating themselves into M&A processes from the beginning and ensuring they are aware of all moving components. This includes the due diligence assessment and post-merger integration stages. It is essential for CISOs approach M&A with a servant’s attitude and to present cybersecurity risks in a way that executive teams can comprehend. This means not using technical language and presenting metrics that executives can relate to.

Our M&A software solution allows you to manage and monitor the M&A process with an integrated dashboard that shows all activities, targets emails, conversations, documents and issues in real-time. You can also customize lists, fields, and reports to tailor it for your needs. In addition, we’ve integrated features such as two-factor authentication and audit logs to help you maintain security controls and conform to the policies.
