Contemplating an M&A? Your biggest risk may be digital.
Due diligence as part of the M&A process helps companies identify and assess assets and risks. Historically, due diligence has focused on the assessment of a company’s financials, management and operations, legal compliance, and documentation related to the transaction. However, in this digital age, when companies merge or are acquired, there are digital asset considerations, and the new issue of “digital debt.” This makes digital due diligence a critical part of the process.
This seminar will help you understand your company’s digital assets, and your level of risk and digital debt; ensuring both a proper valuation of the company’s digital assets, as well as the potential risks and cost of integrating a company’s digital presence, systems, data and vendors.
Participants will learn:
- How to create an effective team to conduct an exhaustive digital due diligence assessment as part of the overall due diligence process
- The questions to ask to and the tools to use to identify digital assets, risks and the level of "digital debt" you will be acquiring
- How to examine a company’s digital and social media assets, systems and data, digital vendor commitments, security and privacy policies and compliance considerations, and create an effective integration plan
You'll receive a guide for considerations related to the successful integration of the two companies’ digital assets, and a checklist to use to get you started.
