Tom Pendergast is MediaPRO's Chief Learning Officer. He believes that every person cares about protecting data, they just don't know it yet. That's why he's constantly trying to devise new and easy ways to help awareness program managers educate their employees. Whether it's creating year-round programs to ensure employee commitment to cybersecurity and privacy best practices or working with teams of people to build and customize award-winning content, Tom is committed to getting employees, students, and even his mother to do the right thing when it comes to protecting data.

Tom holds a Ph.D. in American studies from Purdue University and has spent a career making complicated things simple, first as the founder of Full Circle Editorial, then in learning solutions with MediaPRO. For fun, he likes to scramble and trail run in the nearby mountains.
