Yahoo and the Importance of Cyber Security Due Diligence

According to reports this morning Verizon has just reduced its offer price for troubled Yahoo by $350 million  due to the internet giant’s cyber-security woes. If and when Yahoo who is finally sold, there will be any number of white papers analyzing what went wrong with the company from a business perspective as well as its well-known failures to manage cyber risks. From a deal perspective, the proposed Yahoo acquisition highlights the need of the buyer to fully vet a target company  for cyber security liabilities as part of the due diligence process.  The Yahoo story also shows that the failure to adopt best practices and innovative security measures may jeopardize the company’s valuation at the time of a sale or threaten the very existence of the company as a going concern.
