Deloitte recently conducted a survey on the future of Merger & Acquisition (M&A) trends due to the increasing amount of virtual deals occuring. The pandemic greatly slowed down M&A deals and 51% of executives reported cybersecurity as their corporation’s biggest concern when conducting M&A deals. It has been reported that about 400 M&A deals in the technology industry have occurred so far this year and more are expected to be added before the end of 2020.

In order to ensure security during a virtual M&A deal, it’s important to look into cyber threat profiles to make sure your company isn’t making a risky deal. Additionally, using third-party cybersecurity services can help guide your team to make a safe and successful deal. Lastly, using a bug bounty platform can allow your team to assess the M&A deal and any flaws that may occur in the process.
