Why Hedgehog Security?

Why Hedgehog Security?

Hedgehog Security is intent on closing the ever-growing gap between the Cyber Security needs of businesses and organisations, and the resources needed to address them. We aim to achieve this through local training of talented individuals of all ages, annually – and then employing the very best of them. With strong local presence and an unmatched cyber intelligence network, Hedgehog Security possesses a true understanding of Gibraltar’s and the UK’s unique threatscape, local cybercrime motivators, and attackers motivation, and delivers tailored penetration testing, IT Health Checks, Cyber Security consulting and vulnerability scanning services alongside our 24x7x356 Security Operations Center.

Hedgehog Security was established in 2009 by Peter Bassill with the vision to help companies improve their security posture by delivering security assessment programs, security penetration programs, and vulnerability and remediation programs.

We have extensive experience in security and risk management and have helped numerous companies define and implement security best practices ensuring that their environment is protected from threats. Peter has worked for over 27 years in Information Security and Risk Management and for 10 years as the CISO for FTSE250 businesses around the globe.

Security Experts supported by the Lab Team: In addition to their extensive security knowledge, Hedgehog Security Consultants have access to the world’s leading security researchers and thought leaders. This enables Hedgehog Security consultants to stay up to date with the latest security trends and threats.

Focus on the root cause underlying security problems: Any firm can identify a few of the symptoms that result from security holes and weaknesses. However, problems cannot truly be addressed until the underlying root cause of the issue is addressed. Otherwise, companies will continue to find that security problems arise at unexpected times. Hedgehog Security Experts helps companies find and address the root causes underlying their security issues.

Comprehensive tools and processes to gather the right data: The accuracy of security data drives both the speed and accuracy of any security analysis. Hedgehog Security uses a combination of proprietary and public tools to ensure that they gather the most accurate data through efficient means.

Recommendations aligned with risk and business objectives: Every client has many different factors that can influence the impact of and priority of security issues. Hedgehog Security customizes assessments and remediation priorities in accordance with the client’s business goals and objectives
