Dobson Owens are passionate about security and will assist clients in achieving high security standards that will aid the protection of company assets, including the provision of a safe and secure environment for their people.

Being fully independent, Dobson Owens will robustly represent the interests of our clients and provide objective and impartial advice. We pride ourselves on understanding the specific requirements and risk profile of customers and will ensure any security solution accommodates company culture, policy and is operationally sound.

The Benefits of
Independent Consultancy

Independent consultants have no allegiance to specific manufacturers, services and suppliers. As such, they can provide cost-effective and unbiased advice that is bespoke to customer needs.


Policy is key in ensuring any security processes or risk mitigation is focussed correctly and fully supports organisational goals. A correctly constructed security policy will highlight the most appropriate mix of hardware, procedures and personnel and provide guidance to your organisation as to how security measures will be implemented, and your business community’s responsibilities in this regard.
