Lloyd’s Register buys cyber security specialist Nettitude

Lloyd’s Register (LR) announces that it has acquired cyber security services provider Nettitude, which it describes as a research-led organisation with “some of the most sophisticated technical capabilities in the industry”.

Founded in 2003, Nettitude currently employs 140 people and provides cyber security assurance, risk management and managed detection & response services on a 24/7 basis to organisations around the globe.

“This is an important acquisition for Lloyd’s Register to enhance our capability in assuring the increasingly complex supply chains in which we operate,” said LR ceo Alastair Marsh. “Information and operational technology security is a key concern for our clients across all sectors, as we see increasing dependencies on technology and challenges created by Industry 4.0.”

“As the worlds of Information Technology and Operating Technology collide, the need to build integrated cyber security solutions will become essential,” commented Nettitude founder and ceo Rowland Johnson, pointing up LR’s geographic reach, and “vision for how technology and data will influence industry.”

LR already provides a range of cyber security services to its clients, including certification, compliance, training, audit and security consulting.
