Arcanum Information Security are delighted to announce that they have acquired a controlling interest in Security Risk Management Ltd. (SRM). SRM’s expertise and experience across a range of cyber security disciplines make them a natural fit within the Arcanum family. Of particular interest, their experience and wide range of customers associated with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS) enables the Arcanum Group to offer a completely new service.
Russ Wardle, Arcanum Information Security’s Managing Director says:
“Arcanum have been friends of SRM for a long time and we have been very interested in being able to offer PCI-DSS services to existing and new Arcanum customers. So, the opportunity to acquire SRM made complete sense to us, and we are delighted to be able to welcome the SRM team to the Arcanum Group. As well as PCI-DSS and a range of compliance services, SRM also have significant Incident Response experience and a Digital Forensics capability that will be complementary to our existing ISO 17025 certified laboratory.”
