Professional Services Think Tank – Haydock, North West

4th October 2018 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am


Mecure Haydock Hotel

When firms merge the process of due diligence involves assessing the risks relating to finance, operations, personnel and legal structure, but does not always extend to cyber security or systems integration. When professional services firms advise on their clients’ acquisition activities, is there an opportunity to include cyber security in the process?  Does evidence of attention to cyber resilience increase an organisation’s value in the M&A market, and to what extent should advising firms be able to offer consulting services?

The importance of governance, risk and compliance should be included in the initial stages of due diligence and continue throughout organisational integration.  Stringent regulations on data protection such as the GDPR coupled with the detrimental effect a public data breach could have must also be taken into consideration.

On 4th October, Sapphire is hosting its inaugural Professional Services Think Tank ‘Cyber Risk in Corporate Transactions’, to register please complete our form below.
