You hear about it all the time, from your tech people to the evening news. Ransomware seems to be everywhere and it seems like there’s a new and nastier version every day.

Security Awareness training is essential for companies, but can be a daunting task. This year the new General data protection regulation (GDPR) will take effect in Europe.

Numerous new DPO's will be starting each month on their new jobs, and one of the DPO's main tasks is to handle security awareness training at their company. We know this can be overwhelming when you are starting and it is hard to know where to begin. So we created a simple checklist for the DPO's to help them get started and help make this process at least a little bit easier.
