“The prize goes to the person who sees the future the quickest.” – William Stiritz

The OODA Team is comprised of experts with deep domain expertise and experience as entrepreneurs, technologists, and cybersecurity practitioners spanning both the private and public sectors.  We’ve founded and sold high profile companies, served as CTOs in the largest government agencies, and have hundreds of years of collective cybersecurity experience entrusted to help Fortune 500 companies manage their cyber risk.

We draw on this experience and expertise to provide specific advisory services designed to help our customers and partners capitalize on business and investment opportunities.

Technical, Cybersecurity, and Business Due Diligence

Our team works to uncover technology risks that can become a significant factor in determining the success or failure of mergers and acquisitions. We evaluate technical, cybersecurity, and business strategy risks in a target that can affect the deal conditions or price as well as the future risks and opportunities associated with the acquisition.

Performing a technical due diligence assessment as part of any acquisition or new partnership can uncover risks, ensure a complete picture of the technology assets and technology debts. As technologists we can vet existing technologies, evaluate R&D roadmaps, and identify inefficiencies.

According to a Forescout survey, 65% of acquirers have buyers remorse post transition due to unforeseen cybersecurity issues. Our cybersecurity due diligence assessment identifies cyber risks and proposes appropriate mitigation strategies as part of the transaction process.

Our business and market due diligence services help you understand the emerging technology landscape, appropriately investigate and qualify new business partners and investment opportunities or identify and manage regional, cultural, and security nuances in emerging international business environments. In addition, we can conduct an analysis of competitors or survey existing or prospective customers to identify non-public sentiment.
