KnowBe4’s Security Awareness Training

Hackers exploit technologies’ most vulnerable point, your employees.  Statistics show that on average 20% of employees will click on phishing links unwittingly exposing their organization’s network to hackers.

KnowBe4 security awareness training and simulated phishing platform blocks social engineering efforts to compromise your network.

How does our security awareness training work?  

The first thing we do is send out a phishing security test to your employees to see if they’re prone to clicking on phishing emails.  The next step is to have all employees go through interactive security awareness training through their browser.  Step three is that we will send frequent simulated phishing attacks to make sure that all employees stay on their toes and keep security top of mind.  Our phishing templates are updated weekly and training is regularly refreshed.
