MARRIOTT HACK UNDERLINES THE IMPORTANCE OF THE ROLE OF SECURITY IN MERGERS AND ACQUISITIONS (M&A)
The world recently heard that Marriott Industries experienced a breach that could have involved over 500 million accounts. It seems that hardly a week goes by without a major corporation experiencing a breach of one sort or another, and those are just the ones that we hear about. Many cyber crimes go unreported and thus are never acknowledged to the public. In fact, there may be loss of “shock value” when these large breaches do occur, which is not a good thing! When I first read the news of Marriott’s breach, I perked up. Whenever a breach occurs it reminds me of why I do this job, which is to protect both the business’s reputation and the business’s customers. Working in cybersecurity can be a tedious job, but when a breach happens it should remind you of just how important your job is! In the case of Marriott, I would like to turn your attention to an often overlooked part of the business world: Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A).
