Committed Capital Podcast: With private equity firms sitting on record levels of dry powder, opportunities for PE investment and deal making still abound. Yet complexities surrounding valuation, due diligence and financing are at an all-time high. Hosted by members of Dechert’s Private Equity practice, Committed Capital explores current issues and trends affecting PE globally, featuring conversations with leaders from across the industry.
To help navigate both current and future opportunities and obstacles, Dechert has developed a podcast series featuring insights from members of our global private equity team, as well as industry leaders, to discuss some of the key issues and trends impacting the private equity industry.
With cyberattacks increasing dramatically in both frequency and sophistication over the past year, cybersecurity preparedness has become more important than ever for private equity investors, and expected by PE investors’ limited partners. In this episode, Brenda Sharton, co-chair of Dechert’s Global Privacy and Cybersecurity practice, leads a discussion with industry specialists Jessica Pizzo of Court Square Capital Partners and John Ansbach of global forensic firm Stroz Friedberg on the importance of evaluating cybersecurity risk as part of due diligence efforts, as well as best practices for mitigating risks post-investment, and steps to take should your organization become a victim of one of these attacks.
