KnowBe4’s Kevin Mitnick Security Awareness Training specializes in making sure that employees manage the ongoing problem of social engineering to help better protect organizations against threats like phishing and ransomware.
According to their recent Benchmarking Report, the average Phish-prone percentage (PPP) goes down significantly after 90 days of computer-based training and simulated phishing testing. In fact, the average PPP was cut in half, as it went down from 30% to 15%. And after one year of testing and simulated phishing, it drops down to just 2%. Across all industries, there’s a 92% improvement rate from baseline testing to 12 months of training and testing.
KnowBe4 has used educational technology applied science to build a comprehensive way to manage the ongoing problem of social engineering that can simulate the bad guys and provide online training interventions that can help organizations with this problem.
