The SEC Breach and the New Age of Cybersecurity

The year 2017 has seen a paradoxical evolution in cybersecurity threats. On the one hand, large, shocking breaches seem to be on the rise, such as the Equifax intrusion that compromised 143 million Social Security numbers. Massive damages have also been seen at the likes of FedEx and container shipping firm Maersk, both of which said attacks by the NotPetya ransomware would cost them up to US$300m.

Many firms now see provisions in the law impacting mergers and acquisition activities in a positive way.

The Trump administration’s framework for tax reform “contained a number of ‘playing field’ levelers to help U.S. companies better compete in the global marketplace,” according to a recent memo from Blythe White, a Paducah, Kentucky-based financial services firm.
