The mergers & acquisitions process can include the transfer of any number of assets, from stock to real estate.

Yet, one of the most frequently overlooked transferred assets is also one of the most important - information.

In the best of cases, effective management and control of acquired data is an afterthought. Most times, it is hardly even considered at all. 

If you’re involved in or expect to be a part of any M&A activities, join our upcoming webinar, Who Let the Dog Out - Privacy in Mergers and Acquisitions.

Access’ own John Montaña, J.D., FIIM, FAI, VP of IG and Brenda Barnhill, JD, LL.M. Director & Consulting Specialist will share the most common pitfalls and best practices around information control and transfer to inform how to properly structure deals and contracts.

Attend this webinar and come away with best practices that can help you avoid the many pitfalls that await the unwary when PII and other kinds of sensitive data are not properly accounted for in a merger or acquisition.
