Whether you are re-platforming your software applications or proprietary databases, you can expect to face difficulties in understanding the internal and external threats that arise throughout the integration or migration.
Resource-intensive old systems can be complex to manage and lead to vendor lock-in. While organizations do acknowledge the need to migrate them to a more robust platform, most are not ready for the expenses involved. Paradoxically, due to high susceptibility to data breach attacks, their operation costs keep rising.
One of the major risks that companies face during a Merger or an Acquisition is to leave the information security policies to the information security team when this has to be an organization level activity. In terms of an M & A, it is wise to always treat the target company as a third party and be well prepared in terms of security risks that the relationship can create. The reasons can range from an unhappy employee to a targeted espionage from a competitor. Creating an information security policy identifying all the risks, security testing the applications, the perimeter enhancements, the additional infrastructure, the geographical expansions and the multi-cultural workforce would be a primary concern.
