IT Consulting Solutions For Private Equity Firms

  • Need high-level IT advice for each stage of the M&A process?
  • Do you have the most current IT health reports for your next acquisition?
  • Are you unsure of the cybersecurity risks of a company you’re ready to acquire?

Private equity firms are beginning to understand why a rigorous approach to cybersecurity for their company and those they acquire are needed. Even though deal performance remains a high priority, return on investment for cybersecurity due diligence is easily demonstrated across a portfolio.

When data breaches negatively impact a portfolio company or regulations such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that are now mandated, the risks are too significant to ignore any longer. To avoid financial, investment, and brand damage, we invite you to schedule a consultation with our CIO Advise leadership team.

What Areas Does A Private Equity Firm Need IT Focus?

To assess your firm or the scheduled acquisition’s risk, we recommend an in-depth cybersecurity assessment. That approach allows you to see your risk-based cybersecurity audit, your cybersecurity due-diligence report, and your deal-focused cyber transaction assessment. Once that documentation gets reviewed, and assuming best practices were followed, it should show:

  • Proactively avoiding direct cyber attacks
  • Managing daily complications from IT assets
  • Circumventing any portfolio company’s value erosion

If not, then the executive team needs to address cyber defense risk and information security across each portfolio company and the private equity firm itself, and if any M&A deal cycle is affected. CIO Advise understands what’s at stake and the vital steps needed for a custom solution. We invite you to schedule a CIO Advise leadership team consultation.

I am in a traditional financial services business – but we at Fidelity can see that the evolution of technology is setting our industry up for disruption. What if this technology could do for the transfer of value what the Internet did for the transfer of information?

The number one benefit of information technology is that it empowers people to do what they want to do. It lets people be creative. It lets people be productive. It lets people learn things they didn’t think they could learn before, and so in a sense it is all about potential.
