    “Almost all acquisitions involve Intellectual Property assets and Internet/IT considerations. This desktop reference helps the acquirer determine whether they are buying a valuable asset or a potentially uncapped liability. Insightful and useful, this volume also helps frame the post-acquisition interconnection of cyber assets. It is an excellent companion piece to the ABA Cybersecurity Handbook, and other invaluable ABA publications and CLE programming.” —Vincent Polley, Co-Chair, ABA Cybersecurity Legal Task Force

    In the Digital Era, ubiquitous connectivity has spared no enterprise the risks of being hacked from anywhere in the world. Whether the intruder’s purpose is to steal, change, or destroy information, or to use its unauthorized access to harm and disrupt the enterprise’s operations, the attackers have continued to increase their advantage over the defenders. Virtually all enterprises have been breached and their sensitive information compromised.  

    The reality of this threat, coupled with the near total dependence of today’s businesses on networked digital technology, presents a major risk of catastrophic consequences to most businesses. And acquiring or merging with any business involves taking on that risk. Thus, in any M&A transaction, an evaluation of the target’s cybersecurity capabilities and experience is critical.
