Cybersecurity in 2018: What Every Company Doing a Deal This Year Should Consider

Cybersecurity concerns and data breaches continue to make the news, and the threat landscape is always evolving. Considering how security will impact a transaction is essential, whether you represent a company making a strategic acquisition or a private equity firm acquiring a portfolio, but it can be hard to understand the current risks.
West Monroe Partners has brought together a diverse group of experts in dealmaking for a lively, candid conservation to discuss matters such as:
  • What are the latest threats investors and sellers should be aware of?
  • What should different buyers look for (strategic versus investment) when conducting cybersecurity diligence, and what questions should you ask when speed is a priority and access may be limited?
  • What should you do when a security issue emerges post-close (trust us – you’ll find one)?
Panelists include: 
  • Sean Curran, Senior Director and Cybersecurity Lead, West Monroe
  • Jim Alkove, Chief Security Officer, Salesforce
  • Angela Zhang, Vice President, GI Partners
  • Don More, Managing Director, JMP Securities
  • John Stiffler, Senior Director and West Coast M&A Lead, West Monroe (moderator)
