Mergers & Acquisitions – Forgotten Son of Information Security

Generally, M&A Due Diligence teams have little care for a target company’s ICT security and compliance program.
After the session, we will be able to consider:
- Define Information Security risks & threats in Mergers & Acquisition operations
- Depict a strategy for integration which helps avoiding precarious IT migrations, proliferation of unsanctioned tools, a regulatory mess and huge impact of legacy infrastructure
- Scoping the threat actors and their interests
- Identify why it is important that InfoSec be involved in the early phases of a Due Diligence process, and how it can affect the operation itself including the monetary transactions
- Recognize how Cloud affects InfoSec M&A and how it can help mitigate risks
- Use scanning and OPSEC tools without violating laws and NDAs
- Understand the role of the Security Manager in the whole process

This seminar looks at the application of the General Data Protection Regulation to blockchain technology. Over the past year, there has been much discussion regarding the compatibility of blockchains with European data protection law. The seminar will highlight the most important points of tension and suggest potential solutions. More broadly, it will be seen that the mapping of the Regulation to blockchains unveils many current uncertainties and inconsistencies in the GDPR and its interpretation.
