Security Awareness Training
Cybercriminals use social engineering to gain access to private data, systems, or even buildings. Instead of utilizing technical hacking methods, social engineers can more easily exploit human psychology to hack software. For example, rather than trying to find a software vulnerability, a cybercriminal might contact an employee and pose as IT support, trying to trick the employee into divulging their password.
To help keep your employees on their toes with cybersecurity top of mind, we provide integrated Security Awareness Training through the KnowBe4 platform. With this cutting-edge platform, you can:
- Train and phish your users
- See their Phish-prone percentage™ and their Risk Score improve over time
- On-demand, interactive, engaging training through the browser combined with unlimited simulated social engineering cyber attacks through email, phone, and text.
- Get measurable results
When your users start reporting more “phishy” emails through the free Phish Alert Button, the PhishER feature allows your Cybersecurity Incident Response team to identify and respond to email threats faster.
These measures can help you prevent your organization from falling victim to devastating cyber attacks.

Prone percentage benchmark turned out to be a
Fortunately, the data showed that this 37.9% can be
brought down more than half to just 14.1% within 90
days after deploying new-school security awareness
training. The results after one year show that by
following these best practices, the final Phish-Prone
percentage can be minimized to 4.7% on average.
