Buying or selling a business? IT must also go through due diligence in the same way as the classic elements such as financial matters, intellectual rights, personnel matters, etc
Regardless of whether you want the best possible purchase or sale price, an IT due diligence can clarify many factors that can even have a very large effect on the price you either have to give or can get for a company.
How do you assess the value of too low an implemented security level? What risks are involved in illegal third country transfers? Is there control over IT contracts and license conditions? The questions are many, and the value of the answers can be of great importance for negotiations in a buying or selling process and a final trade price.
