PIP’s Pro Bono Cyber Security Workshop Recognized by ACG Middle Market Growth

In the newest article recognizing how members of the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) community are giving back in the era of COVID-19, Kathryn Mulligan, Editor in Chief of Middle Market Growth Magazine, highlighted the complimentary cyber security workshops Performance Improvement Partners (PIP) offers to private equity firms and their portfolio companies.

In light of recent increased attacks against the financial industry, combined with many firms and portfolio companies moving toward a fully remote workforce, PIP activated its team of cyber experts to provide the gratis offering.

As Mulligan shares, “Performance Improvement Partners’ assessments are helping to equip PE sponsors and their portfolio companies for the new reality of remote work—and the risks that come with it.”

The Middle Market Growth Article features Pat Donegan, PIP’s executive vice-president of growth and client services, and highlights why private equity firms with stake in multiple portfolio companies face higher threats than most businesses.

Donegan noted that an important aspect of the cyber workshops has been clear communications, expectations, and alignment between investment partners and management teams as it relates to cyber security.

PIP’s customized cyber security workshop offers personalized insights and recommendations for each company who participates.

A limited number of workshop sessions remain. Companies looking to protect their firm and their portfolio can reserve their session now.
