The Instillery acquires privacy consultancy company TwoBlackLabs

08 June 2021

Technology and services partner, The Instillery, have announced their acquisition of Wellington headquartered privacy consultancy company, TwoBlackLabs.

The acquisition follows changes to the Privacy Act in 2020 and recent, high-profile breaches which have highlighted the importance of protecting personal data as businesses undertake digital transformation programmes.

“Since the launch of our Security Intelligence division, we’ve seen increasing demand from customers who require privacy services and in a similar manner, that is, by design and to enable them to go faster” says Mike Jenkins (The Instillery Founder & CEO).

“We believe that our acquisition of TwoBlackLabs allows us to offer the best of both worlds”

As part of the acquisition, TwoBlackLabs Director and experienced security professional Mark Carver, will be appointed to also lead The Instillery’s Security Intelligence division.

“At TwoBlackLabs, we focus on the operational and risk disciplines required to
implement privacy practices within an organisation aligned to the required legislation” says Caroline Carver (TwoBlackLabs Founder and Principal Consultant).

The announcement continues a trend of high growth for The Instillery who have previously cited M&A activity as a strategy for servicing accelerated customer demand.

TwoBlackLabs will continue to operate independently under the TwoBlackLabs brand.
