Did you know that 91% of successful data breaches start with a phishing attack? This means they’re initiated by an end user who opens an email and clicks on a bad link or downloads a malicious attachment, potentially costing your company a lot of money and resources.
There are many layers of protection against these threats, including firewalls and antivirus software, but the bottom line is that educating your end users is one of the best security measures you can implement. MyITpros has partnered with KnowBe4, Inc. – the world’s most popular integrated platform for security awareness training – to help you with just that.
Who is KnowBe4?
KnowBe4’s security awareness training platform can help you manage the ongoing threats posed by phishing attacks and social engineering, which will in turn mitigate your risk of things like revenue loss and breach-related down time. Your employees are your last – and arguably your most important – line of cybersecurity defense. Using simulated phishing attacks and ransomware infections, automated training campaigns, and interactive modules and games, KnowBe4 offers the tools you need to bolster your employees’ security awareness.
KnowBe4’s most notable employee is Kevin Mitnick, known as “The World’s Most Wanted Hacker” in the mid-90s. Since then, he’s become a computer security consultant, best-selling author, public speaker… and still a hacker, but now he’s working for the good guys. In addition to serving as KnowBe4’s chief hacking officer, Kevin does security consulting and penetration testing for the world’s largest companies. Moreover, he distilled his decades of firsthand hacking experience into the 30-minute Kevin Mitnick Security Awareness Training course available online through KnowBe4.
