2019 has come to an end and it is time for us to look back at what has happened this past year and look forward to what is coming. For Exemplis, 2019 was the year of the Secure Notary Network. This project was specifically designed for notaries to make it possible for them to sign deeds through videoconferencing via a secured line. This project envisions everything that we stand for: innovation and security. We create a cohesion between people and technology in a sector that does not seem to be the most innovative. Safe communication was one of the driving forces for us to participate in this project and for our business in general.
2020 will more than ever be the year of security. In 2019 we became Sophos Silver Partner, this year we are striving to widen our knowledge even more and become a Sophos Gold partner. This means that we will be true software and hardware security experts. One of our goals is also to raise awareness for cybersecurity. This past year we have noticed that in many companies this is not yet a priority. The danger sometimes lurks in a small corner and we want to help companies find and close the gaps in their security.
In the past few years, we have traveled through the country visiting clients, this year we want to focus more on our local region. We've noticed that we can also be a big help to our close neighbors so have decided that that will be our main goal this year. To accomplish all of this we will grow our team in 2020. That way, we hope to be able to serve you even better and keep on expanding our knowledge.
At last, we would like to end with a heartfelt thank you to all our clients, partners, colleagues, … to make 2019 the success it was. We hope to see you again this year and make it an even better one than last year.
