MetaCompliance Acquires Danish Edtech MOCH

It’s not a case of ‘MOCH’ ado about nothing as the Danish firm has some healthy stats about its users and products.

Security awareness and compliance training provider MetaCompliance has acquired Copenhagen-based MOCH for an undisclosed sum.

MetaCompliance is headquartered in London and says the acquisition underpins its “ongoing growth in its core European market”.

The UK tech firm has been around since 2005. Its technology and training content are used by public and private sector organisations. Notable clients include Fujitsu, Volkswagen, ITN and the NHS.

MOCH is a cybersecurity and compliance provider. It’s not a case of ‘MOCH’ ado about nothing as the Danish firm has some healthy stats to show on its website.

The edtech entity was founded in 1999, has three million users and 1,300 e-learning products.

Robert O’Brien, MetaCompliance CEO, says the acquisition of MOCH “will add significant capacity and capability to our operations in Europe”.

MOCH was founded by Morten Ørsted and Christian Ravn. It seems their jobs are safe as they add: “This is a very exciting move for us to join a major international player like MetaCompliance.”

The Denmark-based company has 34 employees listed on LinkedIn and it’s not clear what happens to them.

MetaCompliance provides its MyCompliance solution. This is a suite of security awareness training options – such as phishing simulation and policy management.

The UK tech company works in various sectors, including financial services, government, education and healthcare.
