Secure M&A Process with Business Software
One of the biggest challenges of any M&A is onboarding a large number of new employees and getting them operational with minimal disruption. Ineffective onboarding could lead to the loss of productivity and a high turnover rate following an M&A.
During the M&A process, IT teams must integrate users from both systems in a timely way without introducing security holes and compromising the integrity of data of the acquired business. Incorporating employees from acquired companies using their own devices, or third-party apps such as cloud-based and social media services is a difficult task.
Cybersecurity professionals need to tackle these issues by integrating themselves into M&A processes from the beginning and ensuring they have visibility over all moving components. This includes the due diligence assessment and post-merger integration phases. It’s important for CISOs to approach M&A with a servant’s attitude and to present cybersecurity risks in a manner that executive teams can understand. This means not using technical language and presenting metrics that executives can understand.
Our M&A solution lets you monitor and manage the M&A processes with a single dashboard. This dashboard displays every activity, conversation, emails and documents in real-time. You can also configure lists, fields, and reports to adapt it to your specific needs. In addition, we’ve integrated features like two-factor authentication and audit logs that help you keep security controls and compliance with the policies.
