ICS Cyber Due Diligence: A Critical Element During M&A

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Industrial organizations are constantly changing. Mergers and acquisitions of assets happen on a regular basis, and evaluating cyber risk as part of the standard due diligence process must become a requirement for executives. A significant cybersecurity incident could cost tens of millions of dollars due to lost revenue, ransom payments, legal fees, incident response costs, and increased cyber insurance premiums. Company owners, CEOs and boards of directors are also being held personally liable for a lack of security oversight following a cybersecurity breach.
This presentation will guide security executives through:
  • How ransomware groups identify their targets 
  • What should be done to strengthen the outward cyber appearance of industrial assets to avoid a nation state cyberattack or ransomware attack
  • Why you should delay M&A announcements until you have done your cyber due diligence
  • Methodologies for evaluating cyber risk as part of your due diligence process
