The average data breach takes 277 days to detect, and remediation costs to fix the data breach can average $8.1 million. Companies are attacked every day by cybercriminals intent on wire fraud and stealing customers' personal information. This threat has emerged simultaneously as the present environment provides opportunities for growth through M&A activity. The acquisition of a company with an undetected breach can result in liabilities that far exceed the purchase price. If your company plans to participate in the opportunity that consolidation presents, how do you realize the return on your investment when cyber risk can cause severe financial, reputational, and legal consequences?
