We became authorized partners of KnowBe4, the leading company in cybersecurity training.
KnowBe4 specializes in addressing the human element of security (i.e. the user). Headquartered in Florida (USA), the company is present in 10 countries and has more than 1300 employees worldwide.
Its solutions are focused on training and raising awareness among employees about the different risks that lurk in online activity. One of its strengths is the training created by Kevin Mitnick, who was the world's most wanted hacker (as we told you in this episode of Isbel's podcast, Malicious) and who held the role of Chief Hacking Officer at KnowBe4 for several years.
Its well-known platform is intuitive and powerful, capable of simulating phishing and other types of attacks, allowing companies to recognize and strengthen their security levels. The objective of this training is for employees to understand the functioning of mechanisms such as spam, phishing, malware, ransomware and social engineering (among others) and to be able to apply this knowledge in their daily activities.
Founded by IT and data security specialist Stu Sjouwerman, KnowBe4 has been recognized as a leader in The Forrester Wave: Security Awareness and Training Solutions for several years in a row. This report evaluates and ranks security awareness and training providers based on their current offering, strategy and market presence.
What are the objectives of this alliance?
According to Alejandro Draper, our Networking & Security leader, this partnership is fundamental to complement the information security offer in all our territories. "Most attacks are based on social engineering, and the best way to prevent them is through ongoing training and awareness programs for employees," he said.
