MARGHERITA STUCCHI IS A SPOKESWOMAN AT ASSEPRIM WEBINAR ABOUT PRIVACY ON M&A PROCESSES
Next Wednesday October 31st, Margherita Stucchi will join as spokeswoman in a webinar organized by Asseprim which will address the criticisms about data protection during M&A operations.
The personal data protection is a relevant issue during M&A operations, as many companies deal with personal data (of employees, clients, suppliers etc.). In some cases, the acquisition of databases containing personal data is the vital aspect of the operation itself. Furthermore, the risk related to the data protection plays a crucial role during the phase of the estimation of the company’s sale price (note the famous case Verizon/Yahoo).
For this reason, especially after the emanation of the GDPR, the compliance with the law on data protection is essential throughout all the various phases of the M&A operations: such as pre-signing, signing and post signing phases. The webinar will analyze all privacy-related issues during the M&A operation and it will particularly focus on the due diligence and the risks of data breach (cyber due diligence).
