Secure Services

In scenarios where you are working with confidential customer information such as PII, financial, or government records, you’ll want to be sure that your data is handled in a secure environment by individuals with the appropriate security clearance. Whether you need this data to be transcribed, annotated, or translated, it is critical to work with the right partner to ensure you have the proper resources to work with sensitive data.

Our secure facilities and transcription operations, like our U.K. Exeter facility, are ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 certified so you can rest assured your data will remain protected and quality controlled. We also hold the Cyber Essentials certification as an additional independent assurance that we have the appropriate levels of protection in place when working with secure data.
