Tapcons in Foundation Wall

Is it ok to use tapcons on foundation cinder blocks in a basement for framing?

Vertical furring or strapping over rigid insulation boards secured with tapcon screws into the foundation wall. Drywall will be screwed to the furring.

Does it cause the integrity of blocks to deteriorate when you use tapcon?
