Technology and Cybersecurity Due Diligence
Our technology and cybersecurity due diligence offering isn’t a “check the box” exercise – our industry experts help clients understand how technology is (or isn’t) enabling business performance.
How we help clients
We help clients determine how well a target acquisition is enabled by technology, and substantiate risks and investments required to support their investment thesis across applications and infrastructure. We also support complex mergers to strategically plan and execute system integrations, outline transition service agreements and help devise efficient and effective organizational models to best leverage new and existing technology. Our expert IT due diligence team also collaborates with our operational due diligence teams on many assignments, providing an integrated due diligence capability.
