MediaPro Announces New Security and Privacy Awareness Training Program for Executives

While all company employees need to be trained to be more security aware, C-suite executives face unique risks and are a big target for cybercriminals.

MediaPro Offers Companies Assistance with GDPR Compliance

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a major privacy and security regulation affecting all enterprises and individuals that do business in the EU.

MediaPro Report Shows 88% of Employees Lack Understanding of Cyber Threats

MediaPro has recently conducted a survey on 1,000 employees and members of the public to find out more about the general level of security awareness.
