Setting Up Your Data Room

Set up your data room

A data room can be utilized for many purposes that include M&A, capital raising, IPOs and divestitures or any other deal that requires due diligence. Data rooms can also be used for managing intellectual property as well as other confidential data assets like design specifications, product plans or marketing strategies.

It is important to only share information that is relevant to your data room. The final thing you want to do is to present potential investors with an excessive amount of unnecessary data that could confuse them or divert them from the desired outcome.

Label your documents and folders clearly to help users to find files. Many VDRs also provide features such as document indexing and tags that allow for faster search and retrieval. In addition, many VDRs allow you to automatically update the index of your files as they are uploaded, renamed or moved from parent folders to subfolders or edited.

Be sure to take the time to properly establish your data space by defining access rights and offering training materials and sessions for users. Consider adding watermarks for ultra-sensitive documents to prevent unauthorised document modifications and leakage. To increase transparency and compliance it’s essential to create audit trails for your data rooms. And don’t forget to have a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) created for your users prior to them beginning collaborating on sensitive data. This will help safeguard you from legal action in the event of an illegal disclosure.
