Our independence, accreditations and certifications guarantee the highest national and international standards.
Our cyber security services
Cyber security maturity modelling Read more Read less
It is not always feasible or necessary for organisations to be fully optimised in every aspect of cyber security. Our maturity model provides recommendations for improving security to a level that appropriately addresses the risks your organisation faces.
The cyber security maturity model will provide direction for prioritising investment; it will highlight which aspects of your security require the allocation of resources, time and budget. And, equally, it will reveal the areas that are already mature, where current investment is sufficient.
Cyber Essentials certifications Read more Read less
The Cyber Essentials certifications aim to ensure businesses of all types and sizes understand, and can implement, the most fundamental IT security measures to mitigate risk and keep infrastructure and data secure. The Cyber Essentials (CE) and Cyber Essentials Plus (CE+) badges demonstrate that your business has implemented necessary security measures and taken appropriate steps towards minimising risk.
Our cyber security experts can help you gain your certification.
Penetration testing Read more Read less
Penetration testing is a method of identifying possible ‘penetration points’; any vulnerabilities or gaps in IT security that could be exploited, leaving your business at greater risk.
We believe that regular penetration testing is the most effective way for businesses to fix gaps in their IT setup before they become problematic. Our testing options include infrastructure, web application and wireless as well as bespoke requirements.
Cyber Incident Response and response recovery Read more Read less
Data breaches can and do happen and recovery can be challenging for all organisations, in terms of both time and cost—research suggests that it costs the average large business more than £22,000 to handle a data breach.
While these breaches are outside of your control, you can control how your business responds to, and recovers from, these events.
Our experienced team are dedicated to protecting your assets, offering a wide range of response and recovery services that limit disruption.
Digital forensics Read more Read less
In the event of a computer security investigation, time is paramount. The sooner we are involved the sooner we can secure assets, limit damage and measure extent.
In situations where a breach has resulted in a civil or criminal court matter, an examination of your digital media and data may be required in order to generate an accurate sequence of events.
Our team copy, transport, and store your digital data, adhering to strict ACPO Guidelines for Digital Evidence, enabling necessary information to be investigated as required.
GDPR and DPA consultancy Read more Read less
GDPR consultancy is a professional assessment of your business’ level of compliance, with advice from experienced information security professionals. We advise on how best to ensure you’re not only meeting the regulation now but will continue to meet GDPR criteria in the future. This service helps your business to remain compliant with the complexities of the Data Protection Act 2018, reducing the chance of a data breach.
At PGI, we understand that all businesses are currently at a different stage of compliance. That’s why we offer both gap analysis and implementation consultancy.
ISO 27001 consultancy Read more Read less
ISO 27001 is a globally recognised international standard for maintaining a high-performing information security management system (ISMS).
We work with you to assess what ISO 27001 compliant measures are already in place and then help you develop any documentation and processes which are needed to attain compliance.
We tailor our ISO 27001 consultancy to each business that we work with, ensuring that any new processes that you choose to implement blend effortlessly with your existing business model. We want ISO 27001 to work for you – not the other way around!
PCI DSS certification Read more Read less
Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of security requirements endorsed by the five most globally influential payment brands: Visa, Mastercard, JCB, Discovery, and American Express.
PGI is a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) company, authorised by the PCI Security Standards Council (SSC) to assess compliance to the PCI DSS 3.2.1.
Whether your company is a large multinational corporation or an SME, we can help you meet PCI DSS requirements and guide an you through the whole compliance journey, or just a part of it, depending on your specific needs.
DSPT submissions Read more Read less
With the day-to-day requirements of an organisation’s information governance and security, there is never a ‘right’ time to prepare for a DSPT submission or audit. PGI’s Information Assurance Consultants can take the burden off your internal team, to enable them to focus on the important ongoing activities that keep your organisation’s information secure.
We can undertake all or part of your DSPT submission depending on your requirements; from identifying the correct scope to undertaking a gap analysis and then implementing the controls. Once the ‘Standards met’ status as been achieved, we can help your organisation remain compliant, which facilitates submission in future years.
Our team can also take responsibility for your mandatory audit depending on your organisation profile.
Cyber and information security training Read more Read less
PGI’s world-class Cyber Training Academy in Bristol provides the best training in the industry. From large organisations to individuals, our training courses are tailored to your specific needs and are taught either at the academy or elsewhere depending on your preference.
Together we can devise an integrated approach that bridges the critical capability gap that threatens your human, physical and digital vulnerabilities.
PGI’s business development and specialist teams took the time to understand Valtex, enabling them to provide specific support for our specific challenge and requirements where other consultancies had failed to. We also appreciated the quality of the information provided and the straightforward communication that ensured we understood what was happening at every stage.
Head of Risk and Security, Valtex UK
We chose PGI because they are known for their quality of service. Our initial enquiry via email was responded to in a professional, prompt and courteous manner and the onsite Cyber Essentials Plus Assessor was knowledgeable, fit into our office environment without hinderance and was very thorough. We now have every confidence in our IT policy and the security of our data and practices.
Operations Director, Fides Enterprise Solutions Limited
PGI helped us achieve GDPR compliance and the Cyber Essentials certification, which means we can now do business with our Local Authorities. PGI’s team were friendly, professional and supportive throughout the process.
Branch Manager, Jimac Radio Cars Ltd
As an IT Company it's good to show our client base that we are serious about cyber security. PGI staff were extremely polite and supportive, answering all the questions we had. Even though the time between initial enquiry and actually starting the project was a bit slow on our end, we were met with patience and understanding.
Managing Director, Bells IT Support Ltd
PGI helped us achieve our Cyber Essentials certification. The staff were very helpful throughout the process and the questionnaire was easy to use. What we thought put PGI above other providers is the guidance included in the (already competitive) price.
Head of Business Systems, Enigma Industrial Services
PGI were a client of ours, so when we needed to achieve the Cyber Essentials certification, we engaged them to assist. The service provided was quick and straightforward and we now have in place a cyber security framework to keep our client data safe.
Commercial Business Manager, Jobseekers Recruitment Services
PGI came highly recommended to us when we need to undertake a penetration test on our web application. The resulting report was of an exemplary standard—with easy to understand information, as well as further in-depth reading recommendations—and it has raised the profile of the security within the organisation.
IT Manager, Wansbroughs
As a key supplier of medical equipment to the NHS, we qualified for Government COVID funding for a Cyber Essentials check on our IT systems. It was simple to arrange, we found PGI easy to work with and overall the service has been an excellent sanity check on our IT systems and processes to ensure we are working to best current security practices. Definitely worth doing if you have the option.
