Thank you Joe. Hi Tina, I am carefully reviewing our current IT capabilites and future landscape related to DS and RC needs. I shall get back to you in a week time.
Is it feasible to create a Data Security Risk forecast Model during M & A phases ?
Can this be a generic solution so that it can be reused for each such M & A actions ?
How early we can deploy the Validation routine so that data security threat does not become a negative catalyst for the entire M & A process.
CIO : Have you identifed control areas ?
Monitoring business communications for sensitive data
Discover information assets
Implement policy controls to secure sensitive data
CIO : Technical Comonents ?
This product is repeatible for any M & A program we execute henceforth. It has upgrade feature to include any lessons learned during M & A as part of the integrated solution.
CCO: Best part is I know what action I need to take to keep us secured and compliant post integration phase.
CIO: Tom you may have received the executive report in your mailbox on forecast on post merger data security threats
COO : I am very pleased to see a repeatible, long term and upgradable solution to feel safe on data security aspects during the M & A work. I also liked the mobile app which provides the executive summary of such threats for executive board members. Overall a good IT and Business integration service for future days.
