Evaluating cyber risk as part of the standard due diligence process is now a requirement for private equity firms with critical infrastructure portfolios. A significant cybersecurity incident will cost tens of millions of dollars due to loss of 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 data breach.

Industrial Defender’s M&A Cyber Diligence Service enables private equity firms to identify potential cybersecurity risks in a target acquisition that would have material impact on the deal structure. Our service rapidly evaluates cybersecurity maturity levels, incremental risks and external cyber liabilities within a target acquisition through self-reporting and third-party verification services. Industrial Defender can also provide more in-depth evaluations pre- or post-acquisition.
