The internet enables our company to provide new opportunities and new services to clients, as well as work more efficiently. But the more we rely on technology to collect, store and manage data, the greater the risk becomes for our clients, not just from security breaches but also in relation to disruption of services or events resulting from technology failures.
M&A has a cyber security policy in place to mitigate risks. We’ve been working with our insurance broker and computer security professionals on how best to assure that we have appropriate, updated protocols and insurance coverage in place for M&A and for clients. Ongoing vigilance about risks is key, and an important component of the professional management services we provide today involves helping clients effectively manage the evolving risks from technology.
