Old school Security Awareness Training doesn’t hack it anymore. Today, your employees are frequently exposed to sophisticated phishing and ransomware attacks. More than ever, your users are the weak link in your network security. They need to be trained by an expert like Kevin Mitnick, and after the training stay on their toes, keeping security top of mind. Here is your 90-second video.
This is the world’s most popular integrated Security Awareness Training and Simulated Phishing platform. Well over 1,500 enterprise accounts are using it, 25% of which are banks and credit unions. Based on Kevin’s 30+ year unique first-hand hacking experience, you now have a tool to better manage the urgent IT security problems of social engineering, spear phishing and ransomware attacks.
You get high quality web-based interactive training combined with frequent simulated phishing attacks, using case-studies, live demonstration videos and short tests. Kevin Mitnick Security Awareness Training 2015 specializes in making sure employees understand the mechanisms of spam, phishing, spear-phishing, malware and social engineering, and are able to apply this knowledge in their day-to-day job. Each case study ends with its own short multiple choice test, there is a quiz at the end of the training, and trainees get a unique job-aid: Social Engineering Red Flags™ with 22 things to watch out for. Summer 2015 we added Training Campaigns which does the heavy lifting of getting users through their training.
The press loves it, InfoWorld's security Guru Roger Grimes recently reviewed KnowBe4.

During the mid nineties, Kevin Mitnick was the Most Wanted Hacker in the world, and now is a Fortune 500 Security Consultant: Based on his 30+ years of first-hand experience with hacking and social engineering, we are covering Security Awareness Training from a number of attack vectors. Your employees are going to be a much stronger ‘human firewall’ than before. Read more here: Who is Kevin Mitnick?
Sure we do. Here is the PDF.
KnowBe4′s Internet Security Awareness Training is based on 30+ years of Kevin Mitnick’s first-hand hacking experience. This is the first time that his experience is available in an online format, combined with ongoing end-user security audits called ‘Phishing Security Test’ which allows you to send regular simulated phishing attacks to employees to reinforce the training, and to immediately correct end-users if they click on a simulated phishing link.
Cybercrime is moving at light speed. A few years ago, bad guys used to specialize in identity theft, but now they take over your organization’s network, infect it with ransomware, plunder your Intellectual Property, exfiltrate your customer transaction databases and/or hack into your bank accounts, and steal tens- or hundreds of thousands of dollars. Every small and medium organization is at risk. Will you be the next cyberheist victim because an untrained employee clicked on a phishing link?
KnowBe4 was built 100% in the cloud from scratch. We are essentially infinitely scalable. Our infrastructure lives in Amazon’s Web Services cloud, and if you would have a few hundred thousand employees that need training, we literally flip a few switches and we have you completely covered.
Our courseware player uses an advanced pre-buffering mechanism to deliver content to the user. The player automatically loads subsequent sections while the user is viewing the current screen. In other words, there is no need for the entire presentation to load before the user can begin playback. They do need to be connected with a broadband internet connection though, a slow wireless connection could cause delays in video playback.
Yes, it’s actally available from within the training application. Click on the Attachments link at the top right corner of the training app, and click on Social Engineering Red Flags.
