Secure M&A Process With Business Software

Secure M&A process using Business Software

The process of onboarding new employees is among the most difficult aspects of any M&A. It’s important to make sure they are on the same page in the shortest time possible. Ineffective onboarding can cause an increase in productivity and a high rate of turnover following an M&A.

During the M&A process, IT teams must integrate users from both systems in a streamlined manner without causing security vulnerabilities and compromising the data integrity of the acquired business. The challenge is made more challenging when onboarding acquired workers who use their personal devices or third-party applications such as cloud-based services or social media.

Cybersecurity professionals must tackle these challenges, by integrating themselves into the M&A processes from the beginning and making sure they have visibility over all moving components. This includes due diligence assessment and post-merger integration phases.

This means avoiding technical language and presenting metrics that executives can relate to.
