DP Risk and Company Acquisition Posted by John on 10 February 2016

When acquiring a new company it is important to very quickly get an understanding of what risk you are taking on from a DP perspective. While the ideal scenario would be to complete a full assessment, very often there is a need to issue a couple of question to understand at a very high level what the DP practices are in the target company. Below is a list of sample questions that we would recommend. Some of these questions are taken from the ODPC self-assessment Checklist.
