Security Services - Testimonials

Feedback we have had from clients we have worked with

We have been providing security and risk management consultancy advice since 2010 and we strive to ensure our clients are completely satisifed with our services. As well as our core services, we have also provided bespoke packages for clients covering enterprise risk management solutions, government & financial services compliance and much more.


We have worked with a wide range of clients, from multinational organisations, to non-profits to small businesses in the local area. We love to get feedback from our clients but are also keen to ensure that all our clients get the privacy they want. To this end, as part of our engagement we will frequently ask you how things are going on but we will never publish a testimonial without your permission and will minimise identifiable details here.

As part of our drive to ensure we are able to fully respond to changing legislative requirements, we engaged Halkyn Consulting to provide us with an "emergency response" service. This allows us to be confident that if we have an incident, we have access to expert resource right when we need it without the cost of keeping our small team of employees constantly trained and ready.
