Secure M&A process using Business Software

The process of onboarding new employees is among the biggest challenges in any M&A. It is crucial to make sure they are on the same page as fast as you can. Ineffective onboarding can cause a drop in productivity and a high turnover rate following an M&A.

During the M&A, IT teams are required to integrate users from both systems effectively without causing security gaps or compromising data integrity. The challenge is made more challenging when integrating workers from acquired companies who are using their personal devices or third-party applications, such as cloud-based social media or cloud-based services.

Cybersecurity professionals must address these challenges, by integrating themselves into M&A processes from the beginning and making sure they have visibility over all moving parts. This includes due diligence assessment and post-merger integration stages. It is imperative that CISOs approach M&As with a servant-like attitude and present cybersecurity risks in a way that executive teams understand. This means avoiding technical language and presenting metrics that executives can understand.

You can also create lists, fields, and reports to customize it according to your specific needs.
