Westwood, Mass., Sept. 17, 2019 — The Private Equity US Fall Forum is bringing together investors, funds, and advisors for the third consecutive year October 29-30, 2019 in San Francisco, and Coretelligent’s Chief Technology Officer Christopher Messer will be on hand to help lead the conversation around cybersecurity. Understanding the challenges associated with cybersecurity is a growing concern for private equity investors, specifically in the realms of due diligence and risk management. This elite gathering is expected to be highly engaged with the discussion around the risks and opportunities in private market investing for 2020 and beyond.
Renewed Focus on Compliance and Cybersecurity Risk
Large investments can result in exceptional risk, especially for startup organizations that may not have a robust infrastructure in place to help maintain secure operations. Messer will address the topic “Cybertechnology in Private Equity” in a breakout session that is kicked off by a keynote on the LP Perspective on Global Private Equity Markets. “Cybersecurity is a growing concern for organizations of all sizes, but mergers and acquisitions can trigger unexpected events that increase risk beyond an acceptable level”, notes Messer. “It’s crucial that organizations understand the complexities that are involved in data compliance and cybersecurity, allowing them to make informed decisions to mitigate risk. At Coretelligent, our teams are well-versed in the language of private equity to help support the unique needs during due diligence periods and beyond”.
Technology, Security and Intelligence Influence
During the Private Equity US Fall Forum, Christopher Messer will also be helping businesses and investors understand the nuances around technology, security and intelligence influence during a panel discussion around how these topics relate to private equity. Through the panel, Messer and other technology leaders will answer questions from the moderator and the floor around how technology can be leveraged to improve operations and transparency while integrating new platforms and delivering services in new ways.
