Major expansion planned by Cyber Security Services Firm

Cyber security services specialist Bridewell Consulting is opening five new regional offices in the UK and plans to double headcount over the next 12 months.

The new offices, in Manchester, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Nottingham and Cheltenham are part of Bridewell’s growth strategy, enabling the company to meet an expected 50 per cent increase in demand for its cyber security services and managed detection and responses services this year.

The expansion into new offices comes after the company experienced 20 per cent growth in new customers in 2020 despite the pandemic, and a 75 per cent increase in revenues for the second successive year.

The next 12 months will see further growth for Bridewell as it expands into Europe, North America and Asia, fuelled by investment and continued customer growth. The news follows the appointment last month of the experienced Paul Driver as Bridewell’s non-executive chairman to steer its five-year expansion plan and develop its service offering.

“With new capital and fresh talent we are firmly on course for significant expansion into new markets,” said Bridewell Consulting co-chief executive Scott Nicholson. “Opening new offices is part of a strategy that has already seen us become one of the UK’s largest independent providers of end-to-end cyber security services.”

Headquartered in Reading, Bridewell currently employs 81 consultants and has more than 100 customers.

“Demand for leading cyber security services is rocketing,” said Anthony Young, co-chief executive at Bridewell Consulting. “And we are now entering the next exciting phase in our development, evolving the depth and breadth of our services to bring our high levels of quality to yet more customers and new markets.”
