Security Due Diligence

Cybersecurity Due Diligence in M&A

Organizations increasingly rely on the third-party vendors to support their operations. If you are managing a Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) program, you need to be sure your vendors will not compromise your cybersecurity posture and they are compliant with government regulations.

The Department of Defense (DoD) requires primes and sub-contractors to comply with NIST SP 800-171 to award contracts. Any issues found during the Comprehensive Vulnerability Assessment (CVA) might become deal-breakers and affect the price and terms of acquisition.

If you are preparing to sell your company,  or evaluating potential acquisition targets, bring CyberNINES in to make sure you are complying with current DoD cybersecurity regulations. In post acquisitions, CyberNINES can help you meet compliance with DFARS 7012, 7019 and 7020.

CyberNINES can help you with Due Diligence by providing:
