Ragnar Sigurdsson
Head of R&D and Co-Founder at AwareGo

Ragnar is a CISSP, CEH, penetration tester and ethical hacker. Seeing that traditional cybersecurity awareness training doesn’t work, Ragnar created a new way to train employees on proper security measures and assess the human cyber-risk factor.
Ragnar believes the cybersecurity can’t be addressed by technology alone and that the human risk factor should be an integral part of every cybersecurity strategy. Modern human risk management requires a solution that understands human behavior — that’s why all AwareGO products and Human Risk Assessment included have been created by cybersecurity and behavioral experts.
Changing human behavior is hard. Ragnar thinks we should empower people with short, positive and fun security messages that are in line with AwareGO’s ethos of no blame — no shame.
Cybersecurity culture isn’t built in one day. Building culture and managing human risk means creating a virtuous cycle of identifying vulnerabilities, measuring human cybersecurity resilience and delivering meaningful, fine-targeted training.
