As a trusted business advisor preparing your clients for buy/sell transactions, do you have the tools you need to evaluate cybersecurity risks and unmitigated liabilities? In the fast changing cyber threat world, there are tools and methods you can use to identify cybersecurity risks and prepare a business for sale or valuation.

In this session we will review the Making Available Information Now to Strengthen Trust and Resilience and Enhance Enterprise Technology (MAIN STREET) Cybersecurity Act, the tools available from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and offer an excel spreadsheet you can use to evaluate your own business as well as your clients. We will also provide a tool to evaluate cybersecurity service providers.
