There are many factors that impact a business acquisition. During the due diligence process, there are financial, organizational, and leadership details to work out. But now, a new question is joining the list: What is your business' privacy and security strategy?
Fifteen years ago, people didn’t put much thought into privacy and security when buying or selling a business. They weren’t concerned about ransomware and cyber breaches. Now, it’s at the forefront of everyone’s mind during a transaction. Business owners want to know: What does your security perimeter look like? How effective is your mobile device management? Do you have multi-factor authentication?
In this episode of the She Said Privacy/He Said Security podcast, Justin and Jodi Daniels are joined by Philip Lewis, Partner at Fulcrum Equity Partners, to discuss the importance of a company-wide privacy and security plan. Philip explains how your security plan (or lack thereof) will impact a business transaction, why multi-factor authentication matters, and the first steps to creating a more secure business.
