  • Bruce SchneierCommunications of the ACM
    “The mantra of any good security engineer is: ‘Security is a not a product, but a process.’ It’s more than designing strong cryptography into a system; it’s designing the entire system such that all security measures, including cryptography, work together.”


Our world is experiencing unprecedented change. In turn, the challenges and risks presented are continuously evolving. Net-Defence was established to meet this challenge and is lead by a recognised thought leader in this field. In 1997, our Managing Director was posed with a security requirement that could no longer be resolved through traditional approaches and methods. The emergence of the internet was beginning to radically transform the security landscape, he saw the gravity this new virtual network could have, and the new risks it would create. This rapidly evolving environment also needed new security solutions – this was the genesis of Net-Defence.



We prize collaboration and the pursuit of merit. Net Defence’s culture supports the continuous development of our team, engaging them to feed their professional growth and deliver outstanding expertise and knowledge based skill-sets. Part of the Ogilvie Group, a family business with a 65 year+ heritage our mix of tradition and innovation is unique and extends security in a digital era across construction, homes, fleet and surveying throughout the UK and internationally.
