Mergers & Acquisitions Cyber Risk Due Diligence

Use Case

Stay one step ahead

Prevailion’s Cyber Adversary Intelligence can reveal deal-changers or deal-breakers

When evaluating companies for potential acquisition or going through the complex process of merging corporate assets and data during an acquisition, it’s imperative to continuously monitor the risk of cyber infection through these connections and consider the connection as a potential liability, as well as an asset.

Traditional methods of conducting cyber risk due diligence that rely on risk scores, vendor surveys, or point-in-time assessments leave you open to risk. A cyber attack or data breach can occur at any time during the lifecycle of a deal infecting the potential acquisition or their supply chain partner.

According to Gartner, more than 80% of legal and compliance leaders identified third-party risk after initial onboarding and due diligence, suggesting traditional due diligence methods in risk management policy frequently fail to capture evolving risks.*

Make Profitable Decisions


Cyber Adversary Intelligence is high fidelity telemetry data collected directly from an attacker’s own infrastructure, giving you significant advantages over other cyber intelligence sources:

  • See attacks in the early stages
  • Confirm precisely which IP addresses and organizations have been attacked, what malware was used and which threat actor is behind it
  • Detect compromise activity quicker with a higher degree of accuracy than traditional methods, such as IoC

Integrate Cyber Adversary Intelligence into your cyber due diligence practices to:

  • Find out a company’s history of previous cyber attacks
  • Target acquisition value and terms and identify remediation items, cost, and timelines
  • Establish a benchmark of cyber readiness vis-a-vis other portfolio companies
  • Continually evaluate cyber threats throughout the deal life cycle
