How to Protect Data Room Documents For M&A Due Diligence

The information and documents contained in data rooms regardless of industry or company size, are typically private and therefore need to be protected. This is not an area where M&A firms should cut corners. Due diligence may require looking over a large number of sensitive documents and making an informed decision. Without all of the facts, you could be exposing your business to serious risk.

Virtual deal rooms allow you to share documents online for a wider variety of scenarios. This includes M&A transactions as well as fundraising, corporate finance joint ventures, insolvency and licensing agreements. This enables a faster and more efficient due diligence process while minimizing expenses.

A key component to this is the capability for users to securely access and review documents and information they require. A robust set of security measures is the best method to accomplish this. This includes not just file encryption but also secure access as well as a detailed record of every interaction.

Another important aspect is having an organized structure to assist users in finding the files they need and to ensure that the files are easily modified as the needs change. This requires a file-naming system that is in compliance with the due diligence checklist and a system for classifying, indexing and naming files.

It is also important to have a section which contains all documents relating to intellectual property. This usually consists of all trademarks and slogans, brand names, and logos owned by the target company along with all capital assets, including real estate and machinery.
