SecureState's approach to the potential sale of a company beings with an immediate risk assessment to examine the overall current state of the organization. Based on this, SecureState will then work with the company to tactically address the immediate issues facing them first, then moving on to the longer term solutions to issues.
To do this, SecureState will work with the organization to develop a one to three year Strategic and Operational Overview. This overview begins with an examination of the current spending levels within the company, comparing the organization's spending to industry standards and examining if resources are being properly allocated to ensure a secure environment. Additionally, based on the risk assessment and further discussions with key personnel, SecureState will determine if there are gaps in the program that need to be addressed in the long term.
This type of financial security planning is essential in providing the best value to a potential purchasing group. With this kind of data and planning in place, your company can ensure that purchasing your organization will not place the buyer under added financial burdens or increase their risk unknowingly. To do this, sellers should begin working with SecureState at least a year or more before the potential sale, strengthening their posture as soon as possible. This type of proactive approach to security should make your company even more attractive as a potential acquisition.
