This is what some of our clients have said said about us




    • Louise Curtis at Daily Telegraph

      Peter is a total Internet Security guru! He can detect a threat to a website a mile off and I have never known him not to get right to the bottom of a security risk. Despite being one of the busiest people in Gala Coral, Peter was always happy to help out with any concerns, queries or requests I had concerning Casino or Games security issues. He always resolved whatever had gone wrong within hours, and would always report back to let me know what had been done and what action I needed to take. He is incredibly committed to his work and would be an asset to any company.

    • A. Gardner at Australian Government

      In my work with Peter he has shown himself to be an excellent technician and trouble shooter. His wealth of knowledge of low level network protocols combined with his in-depth architectural knowledge makes for a very effective trouble shooter. As a team leader Peter is happy to stand shoulder to shoulder with his team on the front line, gaining both the respect of his team and insight into day to day operations

    • Maurice Whittaker at TWI

      We have used Hedgehogs services for 7 years now. Always professional and leading in the field of Cyber Security, I have never looked back. Over the years they have regularly provided top tier penetration testing and cyber security consulting. I look forward to the next 7 years with them.

    • Amar Singh at Cyber Management Alliance

      Peter is a rare breed of individuals who (like me) have a unique combination of heavy technical skills coupled with excellent managerial and other soft skills that make him a prize for any company. The brief time I worked with Peter was great fun. He is very practical but does not give in to any argument if he knows he is in the right. Brilliant person. Highly Recommended.

    • Michael Reynolds at Aruba Networks

      I worked with Peter on a very challenging project and was extremely impressed by his dedication to get the issues resolved. His ability to come up with a solution while under extreme pressure is something I realized quickly and I will definitely appreciate his technical input when I am in a bind in the future.

    • David Evans at Masbro Insurance

      Peter and his exceptional team of ethical hackers transformed our business from just another network waiting to get hacked into a secure operation that gained us the Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation. We were the first in Gibraltar to hold the certification outside of the Cyber Security sector and have maintained our compliance year on year. I can not recommend Hedgehog enough.

    • Giles Lovelace at BBC

      An excellent experience for the penetration test we had on some of our legacy web applications. The team quickly identified issues that had been previously missed and were able to give us some excellent proactive measures to fix these. I would highly recommend their penetration testing services.

    • John Sharpe at Petrolium Industries

      Peter was a pleasure to work with during his time with me. A highly talented operative with more passion and drive within him than you would see in a group of senior executives. His no holds barred approach got the right results every time and helped produce on of the most secure perimiters we ever had. To this day, his work remains as the foundation of our border protection. He was alsways curteous and kind and showed potential to be an execellent manager and CISO of any organisation.

    • Jason Pitzen at Rapid7

      Peter has been a fantastic partner/customer/advisor/anything else someone could be for me and Rapid7 sense I met him a few years ago. His depth of knowledge and understanding of what''s actually important in the security space & how to relate it to the business would make him a fantastic addition to any organizations IT/Executive group.

    • Khuram Iftikhar at Goldman Sachs

      I had the pleasure of working with Peter Bassill at Gala Coral Group in his role as CISO. He is an exceptionally knowledgeable person (from both technical and business perspective) with excellent communication skills which makes him one of the best Information Security Officers around. I would welcome the opportunity to work with and for him again if the opportunity arose and would not hesitate to recommend him for any IT security related job that he applies for.

    • Edward Gibson at Microsoft

      I so enjoyed Peter as a member of my Chief Information Security Officer Council at Microsoft Ltd UK. He always provided a unique insight into IT security issues of import to many global companies who were also members. A respected and senior member of the IT community, Peter stands out as honorable and the person you would want on your side.

    • W. Scurr at CyberSec Recruitment

      Mr Bassill, an individual with whom Ive been proud to have been in contact for approx. fourteen years. As a highly accomplished, industry recognised CISO, I am reliably informed, by numerous others who operate at his level, that his provision of high calibre advisory services based upon his depth and breadth of technical skill-set combined with significant management and leadership capabilities. He has also, for many years, struck me, for what its worth as both a caring individual and very decent chap.
