Traditionally, M&A due diligence is solely focused on the traditional risks areas. However, due to the increasing developments and advancements in technology, asset due diligence evolved dramatically and now includes software escrow and open source software. With this, cybersecurity has become one of the most vital parts of the M&A process for any deal and transaction especially those which involve targets with any kind of online presence.

In this live Webcast, a panel of thought leaders brought together by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the fundamentals as well as all the important cybersecurity issues in M&A transactions. Speakers will also present best strategies in negotiating deals with due diligence.
