IT Due Diligence

In 2022, cybercrime caused $6 trillion in damage. And if that isn’t worrisome enough, 88% of professional hackers can infiltrate an organization within 12 hours, according to DataProt. The strength of your organization’s IT structure is crucial when it comes to protecting your company, employees, and sensitive data from cybercrime. This is especially true when you are combining your company’s IT structure with that of another organization.

Enter Whitley Penn’s IT due diligence team. Our IT due diligence assessment services provide a prospective buyer or merging entity with a comprehensive understanding of the technological strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, risks, and liabilities associated with the target company. This process is critical to ensure the buyer fully comprehends the value, scalability, and potential vulnerabilities of the seller’s technological infrastructure and systems.
