Brief Overview

KnowBe4 offers the world’s largest security awareness training and simulated phishing platform. Kevin Mitnick Security Awareness Training specializes in making sure that employees manage the ongoing problem of social engineering to help better protect organizations against threats like phishing and ransomware. According to our recent Benchmarking Report, the average Phish-prone percentage goes down significantly after 90 days of computer-based training and simulated phishing testing. In fact, the average Phish-prone percentage was cut by more than half, as it went down from 37.9 percent to 14.1 percent. And after one year of testing and simulated phishing, it drops down to just two percent. Across all industries, there’s an 87 percent improvement rate from baseline testing to 12 months of training and testing.
