Knight Riders Raise £54,228 for Barnardo’s!

This evening this year’s ralliers presented Barnardo’s with a huge cheque for £54,228 to support their work with vulnerable children and teenagers. Fundraising will continue until the end of December and then we prepare for our next adventure. Thank you to everyone that participated in and donated to this year’s rally, and to our generous corporate sponsors.

Special thanks this evening were given to Harry Bains who has been the public face of the Rally for the last three years. He has worked tirelessly to recruit sponsors and teams, and has directly led several very successful CSR campaigns securing significant funds for Barnardo’s. A true gent.

We know Harry will continue to promote the rally and participate in it, so we can’t really say we will miss him, but we do offer him a massive thank you for the huge contribution he has made and the time he has selflessly given. Together we have transformed the lives of so many young people.

Join us next year for our 10th anniversary rally to the north of England. It is truly going to be an adventure to remember. Our corporate sponsorship packages are now available, and we are already signing teams. The formal launch of our next event will take place early in the new year, where John Godwin will share details of the fun to be had and our sponsors for 2018.

Hedgehog Security was founded in 2009 with the goal of securing the British business community one business at a time.

Hedgehog Security is a CREST registered, Manchester based Penetration Testing and Security Consulting firm. Our goal is to help identify and prevent “cyber” and information security risks and threats, so you can relax and get on with your job. Operating from Spinningfields, in the heart of the commercial district of Manchester, we are able to access the world quickly and efficiently.

Through active penetration testing or through our Continual Cyber Assurance program, we will always strive to bring safety and security to your business. Helping the business owners concentrate on what is important to their core business and taking the worry and concern of Cyber Security away.

One of the core offerings and unique selling points of Hedgehog Security was the original Virtual Chief Information Security Officer service, or vCISO as it came to be known. Peter was the first to bring this service to market and many subsequently followed. Now the vCISO service has itself evolved. Now called CCA or Continual Cyber Assurance, it is a full tailorable solution designed to bring you peace of mind around risk and “cyber” security. Bringing together everything that worked from the vCISO service and combining it with leading penetration testing and security health checks, CCA is the next generation of service to help you stay one step closure to the attackers.
