Transforming Security Culture With KnowBe4
Training And Phishing

After a zero-day ransomware attack hit an HVAC company a few years ago, they had to shut down for 1.5 days. They estimated it would take $2 million in new contracts to recoup damages.

Since they have started training and phishing their users with KnowBe4, users have become actively involved in security. They now know how to spot threats and are actually excited about stopping them.

How An Accounting Firm Uses KnowBe4
To Improve Cybersecurity

Employees at an accounting firm in Sarasota, FL, saw their city government get hit with ransomware that was launched via an employee clicking on a phishing email.

They realized this could happen to them and reached out to KnowBe4. Now that all users are stepped through security awareness training and receive simulated phishing tests on a regular basis, the firm has seen a positive change in user behavior.


Education Case Study

After an Illinois school district fell victim to a DDoS attack, security and phishing became a higher priority. They needed a better way to protect sensitive data and ensure adherence to The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. Key goals were to create awareness around phishing and teach employees how to properly vet emails.

See how KnowBe4's Integrated Security Awareness Training and Simulated Phishing Platform helped them:

  • Drop their Phish-prone percentage from 27% to .03% in 5 months
  • Improve the security-aware culture amongst staff
  • Promote positive teacher engagement with training content
  • Reinforce cautious vetting of emails with phishing and training campaigns

Financial Institution Case Study

After a year of helping our customers train their employees against social engineering, we decided to go back, look at the actual numbers over those 12 months, and show you a case study that clearly shows the sequence of:

  • The initial Phishing Security Test (PST) that shows the baseline Phish-prone percentage,
  • Stepping all employees through our Internet Security Awareness Training, and
  • Follow up with regular PSTs that continue to keep them on their toes. All graphs start out high on the left (baseline), and drop dramatically over time.

A case study looked at the experience of a Financial Institution with 300 employees who did not have sufficient user education to prevent risky behavior on the Internet.
