Cyber Risk Management Solutions for Alternative Asset Investors
Cyber threats have evolved well beyond data breaches to sophisticated attacks designed to disrupt operations, cripple supply chains, and extort funds — all costing organizations billions of dollars.
For portfolio companies, cyber attacks can have a negative material effect on balance sheets and asset value, cutting into already tight margins and disrupting growth plans.
The acquisition of portfolio companies can also bring inherent technological vulnerabilities, cybersecurity exposures, and/or compromised supply chains, which may not be discovered or addressed during the due diligence process. These risks may result in losses that can significantly impact post-acquisition value. Middle market companies are an attractive target for hackers and often do not have adequate resources to protect against and respond to cyber incidents. In fact, attacks on small to medium-size (SME) firms are rising, increasing risk exposures for alternative asset managers and their portfolio companies.
