Singapore – S-RM, a global intelligence and cyber security firm, has recently announced that it has expanded the company’s cyber security practice in response to the growing regional risks and increased client demand in the Asia Pacific. 

This initiative is part of the company’s global expansion and comes along with the recent appointments of Mark Farley as APAC head of Proactive Services and Kyle Schwaeble, who will lead Incident Response in the region. 

Through this launch, the company will provide comprehensive support to new and existing clients across the APAC region from offices in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Kuala Lumpur. This will be made possible by S-RM’s full-service cyber security offering, which includes helping clients improve resilience, test defences, and respond to incidents.

Mark, who is based in Singapore, has recently joined S-RM from Kroll, where he headed the offensive security team in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) before transitioning to APAC. His professional background includes tenure at PwC’s Cyber Security team, and he began his career as a software engineer and information assurance researcher for the UK Government.

With over 15 years of experience, he has spearheaded numerous complex cyber security assessments and provided strategic support for clients navigating significant cyber incidents.

Meanwhile, Kyle has been with the company’s EMEA team since 2019, after relocating to Hong Kong to lead the regional incident response team. His primary area of focus includes incident response management and the secure restoration and recovery from cyber incidents such as ransomware attacks and business email compromises. 

Talking about his appointment, Mark said, “Given its demonstrated commitment to APAC, including investment in expanding its cyber security team, joining S-RM felt like the natural next step in my career. I am excited to serve our new and existing clients, establishing innovative strategies to help them navigate their cyber journeys with confidence and expertise.”  

Morgan Stark, head of Asia at S-RM, also commented, “Driven by client demand, we recognise the importance of having in-region senior subject matter experts, allowing us more effectively to serve our APAC clients. Thinking of our broader strategy, the launch of Cyber in APAC is also critical to realising our ambitions of being a full-service, vertically integrated corporate intelligence and cyber security consultancy.”

Meanwhile, Jamie Smith, board director and global head of cyber security services at S-RM, added, “APAC is a key region for S-RM’s long-term growth strategy, and we have been delighted to open offices in both Singapore and Malaysia within the past 18 months. I’m excited to see the next part of that expansion start to roll out with the introduction of our cyber services across APAC.

“Mark’s appointment is a significant step in delivering our cyber advisory services in Asia. He brings with him considerable experience helping clients with security matters, and he is a recognised expert amongst clients and peers in the APAC region. I am looking forward to seeing the support he offers our clients moving forward,” he added.
