Merger and Acquisition Assessment

Measure integration risks in your merger and acquisition process to make informed decisions about the levels of risk your organization is willing to accept.


Integration risks in merger and acquisition (M&A) include a number of issues to consider, and security and privacy are two of the key factors to examine during the due diligence process. Performing a customized Merger & Acquisition Assessment to meet your needs will help you make informed decisions about the level of risk you’re willing to accept and how to proceed once the new entity is integrated.

A Merger and Acquisition Assessment can include an array of services including a Security Risk Assessment, Vendor Assessment, Penetration Testing, and/or a Compromise Assessment.

Key Benefits


Reduce Risk

Demonstrate Due Diligence

The Merger & Acquisition Assessment provides the documentation you need for the mergers and acquisitions process, to show that your organization has researched and remediated any security or privacy issues.

Tom Gordon

CIO, Virtua

Security has become a necessary and critical strategic pillar for our organization, and it is too broad and complex for a provider organization to keep up with on their own. Having a partner like CynergisTek with depth and breadth of knowledge and expertise is a crucial asset for our organization. I can’t imagine navigating these issues without them.

CynergisTek’s social engineering and phishing service was an excellent training tool for our organization. A third-party assessment of how our policies and procedures would stack up against a real threat was eye-opening and provided us with valuable information we can leverage to continue to enhance our security posture.

We just had our Incident Response exercise and I wanted to let you know that I have received a lot of positive feedback from all participants including our Executives and Board Members. Everyone was impressed at how the exercise was well-prepared and conducted. Obviously, it goes to your leadership. You were able to relate to all participants, ask the right questions, and in general keep the exercise going forward. You did a great job! Thank you so much CynergisTek!
