Amid some countries discussing coronavirus lockdowns again, KnowBe4 offers phishing and security awareness resources
LONDON, Oct. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- KnowBe4, the provider of the world's largest security awareness training and simulated phishing platform, today announced it has launched a Coronavirus Work From Home Resource Centre for end users, including a no-cost security course in eight different languages.
With some countries across the world discussing lockdowns again due to coronavirus concerns, KnowBe4 is offering an array of resources for security awareness and phishing. These resources include educational videos, a no-cost home internet security course, webinars and more. The course is available in eight languages, including English, Chinese (Mandarin) Simplified, French (EU & CA), German, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese and Spanish.
KnowBe4's Q3 2020 phishing report found that coronavirus-related phishing email attacks were still prevalent. Covering the entire third quarter, simulated phishing tests with a message related to the coronavirus were the most popular, with a total of 50%.
"With several countries looking to go back into or extend lockdowns, the bad guys have taken advantage of employees working outside of secure office environments," said Stu Sjouwerman, CEO, KnowBe4. "We are offering a centre filled with resources available to help organisations keep their networks safer by educating their employees about social engineering scams such as phishing. The no-cost security course in the resource center is truly global given that it's being offered in a variety of languages."
KnowBe4's Phishing Security Test is another no-cost resource offered to help determine an organisation's Phish-prone™ Percentage (the likelihood that someone will click on a phishing link).
