The challenges with medical communications
Alpharmaxim, with its portfolio of high-profile clients, faced the pressing need to demonstrate robust security protocols and meticulous documentation. One specific client required a timely showcase of these security measures, posing a challenge given the intricate and sensitive nature of medical communications. The agency needed to assure its clients of its commitment to security and professionalism, ensuring the continuity of business and adherence to required standards.

Greystone created a comprehensive IT Director strategy with a focus on enhancing security policies and compliance processes. The collaboration aimed to achieve Cyber Essential certification, ensuring Alpharmaxim’s adherence to the highest standards of cybersecurity.
