About Blueprint

What makes Blueprint different?

At Blueprint we provide independent advice.
We don’t promote or resell IT security products so there’s no hidden agenda.

We’re a small consultancy, so each client is very special to us. We tailor solutions to suit your business. We listen to you and your needs, so you’ll always get that personal touch. We won’t take a ‘box ticking’ approach, or roll out generic solutions.

Our approach to information security is positive and proactive. We offer an alternative to the vendor pressure and market hype. We’ll help you choose a sensible level of information security for your business.
