It will also support Bridewell’s growth in developing much-needed skills across offensive, defensive, and threat intelligence domains. What’s more, our commitment to developing skills across wider cyber communities will see our experienced professionals helping to shape the next generation of young cyber talent. Our SOC will bring people and communities together in a collaborative and sustainable space where cyber skills can flourish.”

CREST and SOC 2 accredited, the centre is available as either a fully outsourced or hybrid model.
