Service Summary

Bridewell is one the most certified companies in the industry and has consultants who are leading national initiatives and strategies. With extensive experience across an array of industries, Bridewell can provide cyber security leadership, deep technical expertise and a series of supporting methodologies that underpin our accreditations and have been developed over many years of experience to deliver the highest levels of value for our clients. 

Our cyber security consultancy services cover on-premise, cloud and operational technology environments and can be leveraged to support transformation programmes or meet specific industry requirements, such as UK Government where an NCSC-certified company is required.  We ensure our approach is flexible and can be adapted as your requirements evolve, developing a security aware culture where organisational needs and objectives are balanced against a clear understanding and appreciation of applicable and emerging cyber threats. 

  • NCSC Certified Cyber Security Company - Bridewell was one of the first companies to be certified by the NCSC for Risk Assessment, Risk Management and Audit services. Underlining this certified status is a team of CCPs, case studies that demonstrate our experience to the NCSC, and methodologies which are described to industry leaders and deemed of sufficient quality.
  • Developing National Security Programmes - Bridewell has developed several cyber security programmes of national importance. This has ranged from using security frameworks for the UK Pensions Regulator, the Health sector and independent assurance for the Office of National Statistics and National Records Scotland. Bridewell has also delivered supply chain assurance programmes for some of the largest government departments in operation, ensuring a risk-based approach to supply chain assurance.
  • Extensive Technical Capabilities - In addition to our ability to lead cyber transformation programmes, working at the highest levels of government and our global private sector client base, Bridewell has an extensive set of capabilities across Cloud, Operational Technology and Cyber Threat Intelligence.
  • Deep Cloud Security Experience - Bridewell has strong multi-cloud security capabilities, which cover Microsoft 365, Azure, Google Cloud Platform and Amazon Web Services. Our service offerings range from security architecture to our Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) service.  This enables our clients to ensure they understand and manage their increased attack surface to also reduce risk and maximise Return on Investment (RoI). 

  • Expertise and Outcomes on Demand - We aim to work with our clients to ensure they have access to the right expertise based on their requirements and achieve the outcomes required, rather than assign a single consultant who may only be able to deliver a certain set of outcomes. By operating a flexible commercial model that enables our clients to access all our capabilities, our clients can gain the outcomes they desire rather than being limited by a single individual’s limitations.

Key Challenges Addressed

Our clients often require deep expertise to support their cyber security programmes, where challenges to access the right expertise, at the right scale, whilst meeting compliance requirements are prevalent. This can limit a clients ability to meaningfully direct their cyber security strategy and build the necessary range of cyber capabilities for a successful programme, resulting in delays to risk management and meeting business objectives.  

There are occasions where clients also require additional cyber security capabilities to complement their existing teams, needing to increase resourcing levels to maintain business as usual activities, whilst a team of Bridewell consultants lead a key project or programme for the organisation. Bridewell often deploys a team of consultants of different levels of seniority and skills to ensure that security is built into the design of our clients' programmes and that they achieve their intended outcomes. 


Security Transformation

How it Works

Bridewell’s cyber security consultancy services combine a comprehensive set of methodologies and expertise across various technical areas, including the ability to implement positive cyber security change. 

Many cyber security consultancy engagements focus on the implementation of industry control frameworks, international standards and specific programme requirements. Instead, Bridewell develops tailored approaches to help meet each of our client’s unique requirements.  

Our methodologies have been utilised across many of the biggest global brands and critical infrastructure organisations, certified by the NCSC. Many of our consulting team members help design and drive innovative approaches to industry challenges, in addition to helping shape industry guidance across areas such as cyber risk, assurance, and architecture. 

We work with every client to develop a tailored solution that ensures our client’s business outcomes are considered at all stages of the engagement, and that our services recognise and support their business objectives.  Across our consulting teams, we have extensive expertise in cloud, critical infrastructure, operational technology, cyber threat intelligence and incident response.

FAQs

Here are some commonly asked questions about Cyber Consultancy. If you’d like to learn more speak to one of our team.

There are many ways in which cyber security consultancy services can help your business. By conducting a comprehensive assessment of your business's current security posture, they can identify any weaknesses and potential vulnerabilities. They can then provide cyber security services and a bespoke security strategy that includes the implementation of appropriate security controls. This should provide you with the peace of mind that your business, critical systems and data are protected from cyber attacks. 

For some organisations and sectors, security risk management is a mandatory compliance requirement. E.g.) An organisation would be unable to achieve ISO 27001 without security risk management. 

All organisations face cyber security risks. Risk management enables organisations to define the roles and responsibilities for risk management, the methodology to follow and to track the organisations decisions and plans to treat or tolerate risks in accordance with a company risk appetite. The absence of a risk management process may influence business opportunities or cause concern for 3rd parties when responding to supply chain questionnaires, bids or RFIs.  

An absence of security risk management may result in an organisation more susceptible to security incidents, data loss, service outages and financial or reputational impacts.  

ISO certification, such as ISO 27001 demonstrates that an organisation has implemented and achieved compliance to an international standard for an information security management system. An ISO certification demonstrates a level of maturity and compliance. Is that enough? That would depend on your organisations risk appetite, compliance requirements and the potential impact if that supplier was targeted or disrupted. Depending on how critical that supplier is to your business, should influence the assurances and level of maturity that you expect to see. As the supplier’s criticality relates to your business obligations, operations and requirements. 

Yes. The Bridewell architecture and cloud security teams consist of consultants with hands on skills, knowledge and experience of multi-cloud solutions and cloud assessments. Bridewell are vendor agnostic and provide impartial consultancy to enable clients to overcome challenges or to fulfil their business objectives. 

  • Bridewell consultants can work with clients to form a business case before an organisation selects a new technology or can review existing technologies. For example, a review may evaluate the effectiveness of the control, look for quick wins, consider opportunities for tuning and optimisation. A review of the people and processes who use the technology may identify a training need to further utilise the technology. 

  • Risk management consulants can assist with Annual Loss Expectancy (ALE) calculations to compare the cost of the technical control against the expected cost incurred through an actual security incident. 

  • Other possible options include running a proof of concept to trial or compare technologies, or conducting a strategic review of the organisations risks, maturity, business drivers and requirements to aid informed decision making.
