AwareGO’s security awareness training videos are based on years of experience from founder and CEO Ragnar Sigurðsson, CISSP, CEH, a penetration tester and ethical hacker, and Helga Björg Steinthorsdottir, an experienced HR specialist.
Ragnar experienced first hand the challenges organizations faced when training employees on proper security measures. He saw employees doze off and completely lose interest during security awareness training lectures. This lead to Ragnar and Helga joining forces to find a better way to bring the security awareness message to the masses, knowing that there had to be a better way to make workplaces safer.
In 2018 Eyrir Ventures decided to come on board and is to this day AwareGO’s largest single investor.
