Mergers and Acquisitions
Uncover M&A Data Privacy and Cyber Security Risks
Security vulnerabilities have a direct impact on purchase pricing. Don't risk a surprise falling into your hands.
While there are many factors that may affect a purchase price, information security presents a modern day risk that affects every business. Poor security practices must be identified and remediated as soon as possible to meet government privacy standards, payment card industry policies, and to maintain business continuity.
In the course of performing due-diligence, security risks can present significant hidden costs that may reveal themselves at the most inopportune times. Raxis provides comprehensive mergers and acquisitions cyber security assessment to ensure the full picture is presented.
Uncover Hidden Risks
With the Pre-Acquisition Security Assessment, Raxis engineers will conduct a series of manual tests, security scans, documentation reviews, and personal interviews with the potentially acquired company. A thorough internal and external network scan and security review will be performed. As necessary, staff of the target company will be contacted to discuss how data moves throughout the organization. Systems that carry critical data for the business operation will be tested using state-of-the-art hacking tools operated by a highly skilled engineer to determine the level of security that the company has.
Ponemon Institute estimates that an average breach costs $3.5 million in 2017, with a 27% probability that a US company will experience a breach in the next 24 months that costs between $1.1M and $3.8M.
Verizon was able to reduce $350M from the purchase price of Yahoo due to a security data breach.
