A different approach: Core Concepts

Core Concept Security (CCS) is an independent cybersecurity and data protection consulting practice based in the UK with clients around the world.

Our guiding principle behind all CCS’s services and products is that security, while difficult to achieve, has always been, and will always be, simple. There are no shortcuts to security.  Technology will never fix what’s broken, only people and process can.

Get in touch

Our approach is also simple; It’s our job to help YOU ask the right questions, even if we aren’t the ones who can answer them. We are happy to point you to someone who can.

In the end, if your security program is not appropriate to your business needs it is a waste of your time and effort. Our commitment to our customers is to never try to sell you anything more than what’s appropriate and never to let you settle for less than what you absolutely need.

I protect data, don’t care what kind.

-David Froud, Director

“In a nutshell;  If you do security properly, you will ALREADY be compliant with the data security requirements of: PCI / HIPAA / PoPI / SoX / SSAE-16 / GDPR …and so on!“
