“If you’re not seeing your end users’ Phish-prone PercentageTM go down, it is time for a change,” said Stu Sjouwerman, CEO, KnowBe4. “Otherwise, you are exposing your corporate crown jewels data to unnecessary risk. IT pros know the weakest link in IT security is the end user, but not everyone has effective security awareness training in place to manage the ongoing problem of social engineering. We have been getting numerous reports from customers of our competitors – who claim they have a great phishing assessment tool – but the customer is not seeing any improvements in the Phish-prone Percentage of their employees.”

As phishing and social engineering tactics become increasingly sophisticated and difficult to detect, Sjouwerman emphasizes the extreme importance of first educating employees to recognize social engineering threats, and second reinforce that training with once-a month simulated phishing attacks to keep users on their toes with security top of mind.
