A Middle-Market Private Equity Firm. A Cybersecurity Challenge.
As the COVID-19 pandemic scaled the globe, cybersecurity hackers escalated their attacks, targeting the deep pockets of Private Equity firms and their portfolio companies.
As cyber threats increased, this middle-market Private Equity firm recognized the need to better understand the risk posture of its portfolio and conducted a portfolio-wide cybersecurity assessment to identify the companies at highest risk.
Once the risks were understood, the Private Equity firm then needed a tailored action plan that outlined the activities required to minimize and mitigate near-term risks.
“If you’re a private equity firm and you own 20 companies that have a 5% risk each, you have a certainty that you’re going to have a significant type of attack.”
