The results of the 2020 KnowBe4 Phishing by Industry Benchmarking Report clearly show where organizations’ Phish-Prone 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 nearly four million users across 17,000 KnowBe4 customers with over 9.5 million simulated phishing security tests across nineteen different industries.
The overall industry initial Phish-Prone percentage benchmark turned out to be a troubling 37.9%. Fortunately, the data showed that this 37.9% can be brought down more than half to just 14.1% 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 4.7% on average. Read the full report.
