    Traditionally, it is easy to engage advisors to conduct financial, legal and tax due diligence. However, IT due diligence is a fairly new field that is important but seems overlooked by most buyers.

    With increasing digitalization and cyberattacks (i.e. customer data stored online, proprietary information and knowhow stored digitally) how does your organization go about engaging in IT due diligence for potential targets?

    I think this is an area where cyber security companies are actually stepping in and providing reports that can aid in such evaluation.
