My company deals with recordkeeping for 401K plans and 529 plans. Because of the personally identifiable information that we have, IT is one of the key departments in any integration. There are many things that IT has to deal, but especially inportant is security and keeping information safe. Some acquisitions are not as sophisticated, so IT has a hard job to integrate and the acquisiton, but not put our own data in danger. Another interesiting IT job is to make sure that the acquisition employees don’t inadvertantly succomb to a phishing attach, malware attach, etc. Training of new employees regarding IT threats is an important ancillary function.
