As a company that handles sensitive medical information, TMLEP consider the security of our clients’ information of paramount importance. We have instigated policies and procedures designed to protect that information and having the Cyber Essentials certification is the first step in displaying our commitment to protecting this information to our customers. We opted for the “Get A Lot Of Help” package to ensure that we understood and complied with the scheme in every way possible and the support and assistance we received from our consultant in these areas was invaluable, making the whole certification process very straightforward. We were very pleased to receive this third party certification as it allows our customers to have confidence in our commitment to information security. Steve Hawes, TMLEP
