Session A

Cybersecurity & Its Impact on M&A

Presented By: Aon / KeyBank

Every day, we hear about another data breach at a social media company or large financial services firm. The question is: How secure is your data? More important, what’s the impact of cybersecurity on your M&A deal? In this session, CEOs, investors, and M&A experts discuss recent trends around cybersecurity, why you should know the details, and how you can de-risk your transaction to ensure the deal doesn’t hit any cyber-snags.
