Cyber risk is a critical threat to any successful merger and acquisition in today’s business environment, making cyber risk an important element of M&A due diligence activity. Cyber risk issues that are uncovered during or after an M&A process, can dramatically raise costs, reduce the value of a business, and introduce unwelcome disruption. Verifying the security posture of the organisation in question is key.

In this interactive webinar, based around a case study of a company merger, Howard Ricklow, a partner in Collyer Bristow’s Corporate & Data Privacy Team, and Simon Rycroft, Co-Founder & Director at Cyber Risk Management Group (CRMG) discuss the legal, cyber risk and data privacy aspects of a merger scenario, including considerations leading up to and following the merger – along with how to respond if a breach occurs.

During the webinar, you will learn:

  • The legal process involved in a merger as it pertains to the handling of personal and sensitive data, including due diligence; GDPR compliance; warranties and indemnities and the legal requirements;
  • The steps that a company must take to detect the cyber risks and threats it faces;
  • How to detect and respond to a data breach; and
  • How to prevent a breach from happening in the future.
