Happy New Year from RPost! And now a brief look back at the year that was…
2019 brought us impeachment, college admissions scandals, more Brexit, record stock prices, and Baby Yoda. It was also another busy year in the cyber world; in particular, in the areas where we focus — messaging security, privacy compliance, e-delivery and e-sign productivity.
