KnowBe4 Security Awareness Training: How Simulated Phishing Attacks Can Save Your Company Millions in the Long-Run

With email being the primary communication tool for businesses, phishing scams have become more common and harder to detect. Phishing accounts for up to 40% of cyber-attacks, and according to True List, workers will click on a fake attachment in an email 20% of the time. Additionally, 12% will click on a fake link and 4% will enter data on a fake website.  

Several years ago, it was pretty easy to identify common phishing scams by checking grammar, looking at who the email was coming from, and checking the subject line. Companies are spending piles of money to avoid cyber-attacks and are still getting breached. Why is this? Scammers are innovating faster than companies can keep up with. Not every scam email you receive will have misspellings, nor will it appear to be fraudulent.  

In this article, we’ll talk about our partner, KnowBe4, the world’s largest integrated platform for security awareness training combined with simulated phishing attacks. By 2025, Cybercrime costs will reach $10.5 trillion. KnowBe4 can help reduce the likelihood of cyber-attacks and help you educate your employees in a way that will stick. Don’t join the club of companies who are forced to pay millions to cyber criminals to get their data back.  

KnowBe4 training is a tool to help protect companies from cyber-attacks. 

A lot of companies don’t invest in proper cyber-attack prevention tools until something bad has already happened, but the real value is in making the investment in time to avoid a phishing scam that could cost your company millions.  

KnowBe4 offers simulated phishing attacks that can be customized based on your employees and company. You choose from 15,000+ highly realistic phishing messages, spread over time during working hours. Every employee receives a different phishing email at a different time, and if an employee falls for one of the simulated attacks, you have different options for correction, including instant remedial training.  

Employees are often the weakest link in an organization’s network security. They are frequently exposed to sophisticated phishing and ransomware attacks, with 91% of successful data breaches starting with a spear phishing attack. Education in these areas is absolutely necessary, and KnowBe4 offers a more realistic approach than randomly dispersing information and hoping employees know what to do with it. KnowBe4 is a nominal investment to train users on what to look for and therefore reduce the threat area. With KnowBe4, you get a learning management solution that can help your company avoid millions in future cyber-attack costs by teaching your employees what to look for through real-world experiences.
