Technical and Security Due Diligence

Uncovering Potential Risks to Guide Valuation and Deal Negotiations

Whether you are acquiring intellectual property or merging for growth, conducting proper technical due diligence will give you the knowledge you need to make an informed decision.


In preparing for a merger or acquisition, technology and security due diligence helps you understand both companies’ technologies with a focus on getting the most out of the combined entity.

Technical due diligence provides insight into whether you can reasonably expect to see a synergistic effect— or whether a high-tech minefield awaits as the companies merge.

Why Is Technology and Security Due Diligence Important?

When approaching a merger, it’s critical to assess the details of how a company is run technically, how it is protected from a cybersecurity and privacy perspective, and what gaps may limit the success of product or technical integrations with another company.

You need to know which systems and capabilities are critical to realizing benefits, including web properties, enterprise software systems, information security, and CRM.

A technology due diligence delivers tangible value by

  • Helping the acquiring party understand what they are really getting in terms of IT
  • Creating a roadmap to jump-start post-merger integration
