Established in 2000, ECSC is the UK's longest running, 'full service' information and cyber security service provider. ECSC has grown rapidly to offer a complete range of cyber security solutions and services to all sectors, including education, retail, legal, financial and local authorities. Our ever-expanding client list ranges from e-commerce start-ups to global organisations, and our consultative, business-focused approach has led us to proudly count 10% of the FTSE 100 among our clients.
All our consultants are highly qualified: our minimum qualification is the well respected Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP). Our PCI specialists are all Payment Card Industry Qualified Security Assessors (PCI QSA), and our ISO 27001 specialists have all passed the ISO 27001 Lead Auditor examination. We were also the UK's first ever PCI Managed Service Provider.

- The University of Bradford
