In reaction to the continually changing business climate, companies develop many strategies to increase their competitiveness and improve profitability. They regularly reshape themselves while exploring new markets and developing new products. When they can't expand into new markets or develop new products on their own, they seek alternatives. These alternatives include merging with or acquiring other companies to create a single more capable company. In some cases, company survival may actually be the reason. What does this condition mean to the security professional? In the course of mergers and acquisitions, security plays a vital role in helping to make the endeavor successful.
This unique book focuses on the role security plays in helping to make a merger, acquisition, or divestiture successful. It addresses the fundamental security elements that are required to support the effort. In addition, it provides an integrated "how to" approach to implementing M&A security, complete with methods and processes that have been quickly and cost-effectively implemented.
This book is a must-have for chief security officers, security managers, information system security officers, computer security professionals, human resources managers, or any security staff involved in a merger or acquisition.
