Course Description

The average data breach takes 277 days to detect and remediation costs an average of $8.1 million. Companies are attacked every day by cybercriminals intent on wire fraud and stealing personal information of their customers. This threat has emerged at the same time the present environment provides opportunities for growth through M&A activity. The acquisition of a company with an undetected breach can result in liabilities that far exceed the purchase price. If your company is going to participate in the opportunity that consolidation presents, how do you realize the return on your investment when cyber risk can cause severe financial, reputational, and legal consequences.
