Insider Risk vulnerabilities during mergers & acquisitions
The risk of data leak is heightened during M&A activity when two companies integrate their systems and capabilities – and the impact of sensitive data leaking can be particularly disastrous. The mere announcement of a M&A deal can increase external cybersecurity threats for the business, but many security issues actually come from inside the company. Common Insider Risk vulnerabilities include:
Undisclosed data breaches
Historic or undisclosed data breaches may surface and damage the brand.
IT teams can overlook issues when combined with another organization’s systems.
Employees can leak sensitive data regarding the M&A prior to the announcement.
Keeping track of devices (both internal or BYOD) proves difficult during M&A.
