The Role of Information Security in Mergers and Acquisitions

Presented by

Richard Absalom, Principal Research Analyst at the ISF

About this talk

On Thursday 10th March at 13.00 GMT, Richard Absalom, Principal Research Analyst at the ISF, will discuss key findings from his latest research on how to consider security requirements during highly sensitive and often fast-moving merger and acquisition (M&A) activity. The session will explore: • the risks and implications of not considering security at an early stage of any deal • how information security leaders can build relationships and ‘shift left’ to influence decisions at an earlier point • recommendations for embedding security into each step of the M&A process. Richard Absalom is an experienced research analyst: his work involves investigating, clarifying and sharing best practice with ISF Member organisations. His research at the ISF has covered topics as varied as M&A, supply chain security, artificial intelligence, security assurance, secure agile development, mobile app security, and identifying future information risks for the flagship ISF Threat Horizon report series.
