We are delighted announced the formation of our new group company, Infuse Security.

Infuse Security offers a range of IT security services intent on verifying current systems, whilst installing and implementing security standards with minimum complexity and the highest level of security.

Services include IT security audits, vulnerability testing, risk intelligence/ management and GDPR Gap Analysis, amongst many others.

Paul Howard, Managing Director of Infuse Security comments: “The IT industry as we know it is undergoing a radical transformation, and the need to comply with new regulations is more important than ever, particularly as many businesses IT requirements are shifting into a software or cloud based dimension.”

He continues “The impending introduction of GDPR has triggered risk analysis and correct data protection within businesses, whilst the latest version of PCI is far stricter than previously. Furthermore, it is now essential that government suppliers must be cyber compliant. We saw a gap in the IT services market, and as a result Infuse Security was born.”

James Bagley, Managing Partner of Smith Cooper adds “At Smith Cooper, we have worked very hard to create a strong brand synonymous with trustworthy and proactive advice. Our clients operate in a range of industries, and we strive to offer services they truly need. We pride ourselves on our ability to diversify, continually developing innovative solutions to help our clients achieve their business aims.”

He continues “Secure technology is more important than ever before, and a strategic review of our group companies identified an opportunity. Recent ransomware attacks that shook global organisations shone a spotlight on IT systems, particularly the protection of sensitive data, encouraging organisations to clean up their data and utilise more sophisticated technology systems.”

Following the launch of the new group company, we now cover: accountancy and business advisory services, wealth management and financial planning (Smith Cooper Independent Financial Solutions), Sage software (number on Sage Partner in the Midlands region, Smith Cooper System Partners), Managed IT Support (Infuse Technology) and IT Security and support (Infuse Security).
