The annual staff meeting put the spotlight on security. The TPG Security team would like to thank you again for attending and participating in the annual 2022 refresher security briefing at this year’s company meeting. This briefing is a requirement from the National Industrial Security Program and sets the bar for the upcoming 2023 year. We hope that you found the briefing informative and useful. Another highlight of the meeting was the focus on TPG's commitment to security certifications including 800-171, ISO 27001, and CMMC. Finally, the changes to our payroll service highlighted processes which will allow more employee self-service. There were many topics covered during the meeting so please feel free to contact your security team at [email protected] if you have any additional questions.
