A large Singapore-based mobile advertising company sought to purchase a US-based entity handling mobile advertising data. As part of a US government approved transaction, certain compliance and data security protections were required. That’s when the companies turned to Guidepost.
Our role was to report directly to the Department of Justice relative to the entity’s compliance with a national security mitigation agreement as part of an approved Committee for Foreign Investment in the US (CFIUS) transaction. We worked closely with the company and its outside counsel to review efforts to protect sensitive US person specific information and monitor the implementation of a holistic compliance program including policies, procedures, training, technical protections and leadership support.
