Mergers and Acquisitions Assessment

Ensure privacy program readiness for all your M&A transactions.

Dealmakers all around the world are paying more attention to GDPR, CCPA and other privacy regulations during evaluation of a target company’s data protection procedures and policies. For target companies holding personal data, the approach to compliance can influence the overall valuation.
