The results of the 2023 KnowBe4 Phishing by Industry Benchmarking Report clearly show where organizations’ Phish-proneTM Percentages started and where they ended up after at least 12 months of regular testing and security awareness training. The study analyzed a data set that included 12.5 million users across 35,681 KnowBe4 customers with over 32.1 million simulated phishing security tests across 19 different industries.
The overall industry initial Phish-prone Percentage benchmark turned out to be a troubling 33.2%. Fortunately, the data showed that this 33.2% can be brought down to just 18.5% within 90 days of deploying new-school security awareness training. The one-year results show that by following these best practices, the final Phish-prone Percentage can be minimized to 5.4% on average. Read the full report.
