Baigent’s Information Security Services Ltd


Baigent’s Information Security Services Ltd. offer a wide variety of security consultancy services designed to meet the individual needs of SME’s, public sector organisations and larger corporations who want to protect their business and enhance the overall security of their internal and external IT systems.


At Baigent’s Information Security Services, we recognise that in the rapidly changing digital world many organisations lack the specialised knowledge and resources to constantly stay ahead of the threats to their business’ information systems and infrastructure. Our mission is to work with each business to help them to understand the risks and to minimise the threat from both internal and external cyber-attacks.


Cyber crime is an increasing concern for all organisations, regardless of size. To help any type of organisation attain a baseline level of cyber security and to help them to reduce the risk of becoming a victim of the most common cyber-attacks, in June 2014, the UK Government launched The Cyber Essentials Scheme. Baigent’s Information Security Services has been a Cyber Essentials Certification Body since 2014. Based in Hampshire they can assess and certify business of all sizes anywhere in the UK, even remotely.
