“As social engineering attacks continue to increase, we see the need for our products and services continue to grow tremendously,” said Stu Sjouwerman, CEO, KnowBe4. “With a customer base of over 26,000, KnowBe4 is helping more organizations educate their workforce on the latest security threats to help better protect those organizations. Two components that are key to our success as an organization are culture and customer service. These are two pillars that our organization was built on and upon which our hypergrowth is based.”

KnowBe4 recently unveiled new phishing benchmark data that showcases the most at-risk industries. The data found that construction companies have the highest “Phish-proneTM” employees in both the small and medium-sized organization category. Hospitality organizations take the lead in large organizations (1,000 or more employees). The study shows these types of organizations rank higher (in the high thirty and high forty percentiles) than the overall average of 29% across all industries and size organizations. Large transportation organizations had the lowest Phish-prone benchmark at 16%.
