With the increasing number of cyber attacks and the increasing number of mergers/acquisitions etc., it has become increasingly difficult to pinpoint whether systems/service providers etc. are impacted or not.
For example, the recent Accellion breach impacted a wide range of companies. Many of these corporations purchased and/or acquired other companies who no longer go by those acquired names. If we did business with these groups 5+ years ago pre-merger, we would somehow have to track/know that the company we did business with was acquired and our data may be at risk.
Just curious how others have handled situations like this or if there are any good ideas.
If my example/question isn’t clear, my apologies. Let me know and I’ll try to clarify further.
