How do we communicate securely by email with you?

TP Transcription Limited provides an encrypted email solution to all our clients, which means that when you send us recordings using our military grade SSL secure file upload service you can be guaranteed that your recordings will be kept with the tightest cyber security possible. Once the transcripts of the audio recordings have been completed these will be sent back to you via email, but not just any email. We use Egress Protect encrypted email, which means that the email is sent via the Egress servers and encrypted at the point it is sent, and decrypted at the point you receive it.

In terms of extra steps, it does mean that you will have to access the Egress server to read your email, but the level of security around your transcription is of such a high standard that most governments around the world use it, as well as military and security services. The transcription and the attached email will be unhackable for any third party attempts to access it. This does mean that you can rest assured that your communication with us is completely confidential from start to finish, and together with our cyber essentials accreditation and our ISO27001 security system we aim to provide the highest levels of security to our clients that we possibly can.
