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 assigning a single consultant who may only be able to deliver a certain set of outcomes.

Key Challenges Addressed
For organisations in government, the wider public sector and critical national infrastructure, it is challenging to find suitably accredited and experienced consultants that can deliver cyber security projects at scale. This can be problematic given that these organisations may lack the technical expertise and resources necessary to ensure security is embedded throughout their operations.
Even with existing certified individuals, it is often challenging to find individuals and companies with vast expertise across the technical or unique environments such as multiple private clouds, hybrid cloud, DevOps environments and operational technology. This is where Bridewell’s expertise is applied to enable clients to achieve effective and successful outcomes.
Without access to the appropriate skills and capabilities, businesses often have an incomplete understanding of their cyber security posture, risk mitigation, and the potential impact a security incident could have on their operations. This makes it difficult to maximise the value of their cyber security investment, conduct risk assessments, and ensure they achieve compliance with relevant regulatory frameworks. Utilising skilled and experienced consultants enables a business to achieve it’s goals effectively and on the first attempt, often in support of achieving strategic business objectives or to fulfil compliance requirements.
Certification and Accreditation
Existing client’s have selected Bridewell services to help them to achieve their certification and accreditation requirements. This includes producing risk assessments, policy documents and implementing security standards.
The services are also used to support clients who have specific Government or Defence Accreditation requirements to achieve. Bridewell consultants hold CCP certifications, security clearances and are experienced in a variety of risk assessment methodologies (e.g., IS1/2, IRAMv2), producing RMADS and are knowledgeable on a number of common security standards and frameworks (NIST, ISO, OWASP).
Fulfill Your Resourcing Requirement
Recruitment and retention of cyber security resources is a common business challenge. Internal resources may not have the experience or capacity to fulfil a strategic or priority business need.
Bridewell services provide access to certified and experienced consultants who can hit the ground running, have strong communication and problem solving skills. Often drawing on past experiences from similar engagements, Bridewell consultants can advise on solutions and approaches to meet individual client situations and business needs.
