Shield safeguarding a M&A-process

Shield safeguarding a M&A-process

A possible merger is discussed between two large industrial companies under the protection of Shield

Mobile phones are relatively easy to use for eavesdropping on private conversations. They are therefore an attractive target for hackers who aim to sell or use valuable information during an M&A-process that have significant impact on the stock market. Phones can be hacked through downloaded apps that have access to the microphone and by physically getting a hold of the phone to install malicious software. This means that a phone should never be left out of sight and that a phone never should be laying around during a meeting where sensitive information is discussed. An obvious cyber security conundrum.

Shield safeguarding

Shield is our solution to this problem, a noise-box especially developed to make phones less of a security risk. Here is an example of how Shield can play an important role for safeguarding and information security during a M&A-process.

During a six months long merger process between two large corporations, meetings are held biweekly. Whether done intentionally or accidentally, any information leakage may be the end of the merger and could also be used to conduct insider trading. Before all meetings the participants are expected to put their phones and smartwatches in Shield.

One, two, three Gazelles!

One, two, three Gazelles!

It is a pleasure to announce that Dagens Industri have awarded us with the 2022 Gazelle-award. link22 have been awarded the Gazelle-status for three consecutive years and we are highly motivated to keep the trend going. At the end of the day, the market is the final judge. Our existence depends on market interest. We get customers by fulfilling the promises we make. Satisfied customers recommend us and we close more deals. Growth is a very good indicator for added value. To get Gazelle status by Dagens Industri the following must be met:

  • A net turnover that exceeds SEK 10 million, according to the latest annual report.
  • At least ten employees
  • At least doubled revenue over the last four years.
  • Yearly increased revenue during the last three years
  • A positive overall operating result for the last four financial years.
  • Mainly organic growth (not mergers and acquisitions)
  • Healthy finances

 

We tripled the Gazelles and increased the workforce greatly for the last three years. Link22 is growing fast and is going far, but we are in no rush. We therefore like to end with the African proverb “If you want to go fast, go alone, if you want to go far, go together”.

Integrity and personal information safeguarded by Shield

Integrity and personal information safeguarded by Shield

A family with secret identities meets with social services and speaks freely thanks to Shield

Mobile phones are a security risk for people in vulnerable situations. A hacked phone can reveal a secret identity or location. A perpetrator can, by placing malicious software in a phone or using a regular app with microphone access, threaten and hurt his victim. This means that a phone should never be left out of sight and that a phone never should be laying around during a meeting where sensitive information is discussed. An obvious cyber security conundrum.

Integrity and privacy

To help people in vulnerable situations safely share information we have created Shield, a noise-box especially developed to make phones less of a security risk. Here is an example of how Shield can be an important piece of a truthful conversation between social security and a family living under protected identities.

A mother and her child living under protected identities have a meeting at social services. They have been living under threat for a long time and are extremely cautious not to be found. To respect the family's integrity and privacy the social services have a Shield in the meeting room where all phones are put in sensitive meetings. This also gives the mother a well needed sense of safety.

Earn trust with superior meeting room security through Shield

Mobile phones are relatively easy to use for eavesdropping on meetings. They are therefore an attractive target for hackers who aim to sell or use valuable information. Phones can be hacked through downloaded apps that have access to the microphone and by physically getting a hold of the phone to install malicious software. This means that a phone should never be left out of sight and that a phone never should be laying around during a meeting where sensitive information is discussed. An obvious cyber security conundrum.

Shield protecting client

Shield is our solution to this problem, a noise-box especially developed to make phones less of a security risk. Here is an example of how Shield protection can help a law firm win the trust of an important client.

A large corporation is about to sign a partnership agreement with a law firm to handle everything from patents to M&As. The law firm explains to their guests that phones are a major security risk and their security policy requires everyone to put their phones in Shield before any business is discussed. The potential client is impressed by the seriousness of the law firm and decides that they are by far the most reliable long term partner.
