“My goal has always been to create a sane, fun, and sustainable work environment. To achieve that goal, I firmly believe that all of us must play a role, no matter what sector of the organization we are in. We must behave ethically while caring for each other, our communities, and our planet. Creating an ethical, inclusive, and environmentally focused organizational culture starts at the top with my executives and me setting expectations and leading by example, but the mission is truly carried to fruition by the work of all our team members. The Knowsters and I are all dedicated to making the impact we have on our world a positive one.”

- Stu Sjouwerman, Chief Executive Officer

Governance

We recognize the importance of creating checks and balances in our processes, ensuring our leadership follows a strict code of ethics, and mitigating risk for our investors, stakeholders, customers, and employees. Our internal audit team provides objective assurance and advice over the governance processes and controls. Enterprise-Wide Risk Assessments (ERA) and annual Audit Plans are provided to the Board of Directors to ensure appropriate accountability and risk mitigation. To us, this is rooted in the very core of our business model. We aim to help organizations around the globe stay compliant with local cybersecurity regulations while mitigating the risk that any employee at any organization falls victim to a crippling social engineering attack.
