  • Covenant evaluates your staff members’ understanding of your policies and procedures for cybersecurity compliance.
  • In addition, the data gained from these activites enables your organization to review your agreements, memorandums of understandings and other important contracts to ensure your vendors, clients and internal personnel are accountable for information protection.
