KnowBe4 launches phishing security resource kit to help combat the most common form of social engineering


KnowBe4 has released its phishing security resource kit to help end users defend themselves and their organisations against the threat of phishing attacks. 

Phishing is a social engineering scheme in which bad actors attempt to acquire sensitive information from users such as login credentials and credit card information or trick them into clicking on an infected link or attachment that can download malware by disguising the email as being from a trustworthy entity like a known contact or organisation.

Over 90% of successful data breaches and hacks start with phishing scams — it is the most common form of social engineering and a threat to every end user and organisation around the world.  

KnowBe4’s phishing security resource kit will include user resources such as access to a free on-demand webinar on phishing mitigation, KnowBe4’s most popular phishing white paper, “Comprehensive Anti-Phishing Guide E-Book”, a video on how to avoid phishing attacks, infographics, posters, digital signage and more. 

“Phishing remains one of the most dangerous threats to users and organisations because of how easily it can be disguised and its potential to cause detrimental harm and fallout,” said Stu Sjouwerman, CEO, KnowBe4.

“KnowBe4 recognises the significance of this threat, which is why we are dedicated to producing world-class, new-school security awareness training and resources to educate users on the signs of phishing scams and how to best prepare and defend against them. Our new phishing security resource kit enables end users and organisations to strengthen their security culture and make smarter security decisions.”
