IT Security and data protection – reality lived by Funk
As a credible advisor in cyber risk management, Funk also consciously takes the lead when it comes to data protection and IT security. Funk manages confidential company data of customers and their employees. Data protection is also a continuous process for Funk. The measures already implemented can be summarised as follows.
Regular sensitisation and Training
On the basis of a specialized e-learning tool, employees are regularly sensitized and trained in the topics of data protection and data security. The program is based on several modules and is continuously adapted to the cyber Environment.

With SEPPmail we guarantee the authenticity of the sender and ensure the confidentiality and integrity of the message. The sending and receiving of encrypted and signed e-mails takes place in the familiar mail environment, is simple, fast and secure more than ever.
