Financier Worldwide recently moderated a discussion on cyber-security risks in M&A between Adam Pang, a director at Merrill DataSite, David Stanton, a partner at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP, and Timothy J. Nagle, counsel at Reed Smith LLP.
The panelists were asked to give their opinion on how they would characterize the threats of cyber security in M&A and whether dealmakers pay enough attention to the issue, in addition to the different types of cyber security risks that exist and are connected to the M&A process.
The panelists also gave their insight into the issues acquirers should consider when conducting cyber due diligence on a potential target company and how to manage and mitigate cyber security risk when transferring sensitive data between professional advisors and financiers who are involved in corporate transactions by utilizing a secure virtual data room to house and track access to transaction documents.
