Cybersecurity in M&A

In mergers and acquisitions, the importance of cybersecurity has increased significantly. Companies are highly dependent on digital services, networks and systems. In one way or another, every company is a technology company. That’s why it is important to understand the cyber risks and current capabilities or investment needs of the target company before preparing the sales agreement. When listing, it is important to know the various security-related expectations. By contrast, when selling, the potential buyers should be provided with accurate information on the current state of the company’s cybersecurity. It is particularly important to ensure the proper integration of the acquired company.

What we offer

  • Buyer side cyber due diligence assessments
  • Sale side cyber due diligence assessments
  • IPO readiness assessments regarding cybersecurity
  • Expert support within post deal integration and IPO lift up regarding cybersecurity

OT Security

In industrial automation, traditionally not enough attention has been paid to security risks. Nowadays, factories are increasingly being connected to  the internet even though there might be lots of outdated and vulnerable technology. Our team will conduct a technical audit in your factory environment with the aim of identifying vulnerabilities and draw up a roadmap for improving the security.

After the security has been improved, the factory will be more secure and your employees, investments and environment will be better protected.

What we offer

Depending on your level of maturity and life-cycle stage, we offer the following services:

  • Technical security testing of production systems as part of factory testing (FAT) or commissioning (SAT), for example
  • Technical audit of the production facility, including IT/OT interfaces and third-party connections
  • Development of the supply chain’s security
  • IEC 62443 maturity assessments and preparation for a certification audit
  • BIA assessments and continuity planning for production, support and building technology systems
