M&A Cyber Assessment
PeopleSec understands that cybersecurity is a critical factor while evaluating an organization for a merger or acquisition. This is why PeopleSec has developed an assessment explicitly tailored for mergers and acquisitions. This assessment will give insight into regulatory and compliance adherence, policy and procedure and determine the likelihood of a breach happening.
During this assessment, we cover everything; Device Inventory, Software Inventory, Secure Config of both Hardware & Software, Secure Network Config, Boundary Defense, M.M.A. (Maintenance, Monitoring, and Analysis of audit logs), Application Security, and Admin Privileges.
One of the biggest challenges facing companies trying to maintain compliance is gaining confidence in their IT systems currently in place. The importance of knowing IT systems are able to fulfill tasks involved in compliance and risk management cannot be overstated.

Websites or web applications are common targets for attackers. Using small and simple vulnerabilities, an attacker can gain access to confidential information that can lead to financial loss or tarnished reputation.
