Making history safe
“In the constantly changing and evolving sphere of Cyber Security, it is often difficult for organisations with multiple pressures on resource to keep abreast, let alone be ahead of the threat. A solution to this problem is to seek help from organisations that specialise in this area, and it was with this intention that we engaged with KCS Group.
From the first meeting, it was clear to technical and non-technical participant, that KCS had a wealth of experience, who collectively could not just look at the bigger picture but also the finer details where vulnerabilities are often found and exploited. Throughout the process, from understanding our organisation and security environment, to their assessments of the risks, to the reporting and support given to address any vulnerabilities that were found, KCS were engaging, professional and efficient. The correct resources were brought in to evaluate areas of weaknesses and highlight threats that we had not considered. Their on-going monitoring service gives us the peace of mind that a specialist team is regularly looking out for potential cyber security breaches with the goal to address them before they are exploited.
Although a new working relationship, it has started on the correct footing, and we hope for it to continue in that vein for years to come.”
Head of Information Services, British Museum
“We have recently engaged KCS to provide us a security review and risk analysis of our systems. They undertook the engagement professionally and efficiently, providing an excellent service and sharing valuable security insights. Their knowledge is clearly current and has provided an invaluable contribution to our existing strategy. I would be happy to recommend them to any organisation seeking assistance or reassurances in the security arena.”
Help for Heroes
Rare in this field
“Dentons and KCS have a long history of working together and we are proud to have them as strategic risk intelligence partners. They routinely provide our clients with high quality services intelligence reports faster and more cost effectively than their competition. In particular, their ability to conduct discrete non-conventional due diligence reporting has been highly valuable to clients who want to better understand their current or prospective business partners without causing offence or jeopardising a valuable commercial deal. There is not a country or highly sensitive circumstance I have come across yet where Stuart and his team have not been able to deliver. That is rare in this field”.
General Counsel, Dentons
Invaluable in supporting business decisions
“I have worked with the KCS Group Europe team for over 20 years. During this time, they have supported my companies on numerous occasions, providing due diligence, discrete intelligence, and market entry investigation services. The team are very professional, providing detailed reports that are both thorough and clear and the information they have provided has proved invaluable in supporting business decisions.
I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone requiring specialist intelligence services”.
Paul Lester, CBE

Sovereign Ferries Ltd
Highest integrity, credibility, and professionalism
“I have instructed KCS Group Europe on a number of occasions in the past decade and have always found them to be an organisation of the highest integrity, credibility and professionalism. My use for their services has been focused primarily in Russia and Eastern Europe in terms of establishing new relationships with suitable players in industry, and investigating ‘behind the curtain’ of the governments and business environment of these countries to ensure that the two leading multinational technology companies, at which I held senior management positions, would not fall foul of any persons with a hidden agenda, or unspoken expectations of bribery and the like.
When KCS report in you always have confidence that the intelligence is reliable, actionable, and unique. The Group has access to networks and sources worldwide on an unparalleled scale and depth that we could not have managed without.
I consider KCS to be a vital partner in such work and their contribution to making our Eastern European ventures so successful cannot be understated”.
“Stuart Poole-Robb is one of those people that one occasionally meets during the course of a lifetime, who is utterly trustworthy. He has total integrity and that is extremely rare. As a graphologist of 60 years standing I can vouch for this fact.
Integrity consists of various levels of strength and it is rare to find someone whose character is absolute in this direction”.
Erik Rees Consultant Graphologist
Impeccable and game-changing intelligence
“I have worked with KCS Group Europe for the better part of twenty years and have always found them to be a reliable provider of impeccable and game-changing intelligence services. The firm at which I was CEO for much of this time has engaged KCS to support a wide variety of projects in both corporate intelligence services and proactive cyber defence including, but not limited to, market entry in the former Soviet states, due diligence on prospective business partners and discovery of a criminal gang using illegal Internet domains in an attempt to defraud the company. In each eventuality KCS succeeded in identifying issues of concern, evidence of illegal behaviour, or potential risks which could damage the name and integrity of the company and its business.
Indeed, in one cross-European dispute, KCS were indirectly responsible for achieving a £4m settlement in our favour at a project fee of only 20,000 Euros.
I have always found KCS to offer intelligence products and services of a much higher quality than their larger competitors but at a much more agreeable price.
I would recommend them to any firm looking for assistance in the security or intelligence arenas”.
