Future Planning 



The slower pace of summer often provides an opportunity for you to take some much-needed time off to rest and rejuvenate. But it’s also an ideal season to tackle aspects of the business you may not have made time for during the year. One suggestion: start the process to get your company accredited by CyberSecure Canada. It’s a national certification that’ll not only help protect your business but build trust with your clients, too. You can read more about this program below.

At F12, we believe a huge part of our success is our relationships with our clients. That’s why we like to share organizational updates with you, like the two most recent management changes to our company: Mike Maillet joins F12 as COO, stepping in for Ryan Sigouin, who is now our Chief Strategy Officer. These changes will help F12 serve you—our clients—better as we prepare for the future.

Yours in IT and innovation,

The F12 team
