Our expertise

Cybersecurity

Through the lift of the investment, we help clients assess, monitor, and uplift the cybersecurity programs of their private equity sponsor clients. This allows cybersecurity to continue to be an asset to the investment team, as opposed to a liability.

Technology Risk

Through a focus on business continuity and business impact, our team helps investment and operating professionals ascertain key risk to business interruption and help the portfolio companies prioritize resiliency as part of their core technology roadmap.

Privacy

As jurisdictions globally continue to focus on the rights of individuals pertaining to personal data, we can help investment and operating professionals execute privacy by design at their portfolio companies as part of their operational improvement roadmap.

Pre-Deal Due Diligence

Technology, cyber, and privacy risk can make a huge difference in the successful execution of an investment thesis. With our industry leading due diligence efforts, we will evaluate the investment targets, technology readiness to execute on a business plan, the quality and efficacy of the cybersecurity program, and the execution and maintenance of privacy compliance in line with your obligations. The report will include detailed information pertinent to the investment thesis with an investment professional quality summarization.
