Testing Security Awareness with KnowBe4


Phishing attacks are becoming more common and more elaborate as technology advances in an increasingly online world. What are your best defenses against these attacks? Knowing the signs and practicing safe online etiquette is the key to ensuring your organization’s information is secure. KnowBe4 offers security awareness courses designed to test an organization's ability to behave safely and securely while working in an online environment. Let’s check out a few that are offered by KnowBe4!


Weak Password Test


There are ten types of weak password related threats. Use the Weak Password test to see how effective your organization’s password policies are. Don’t worry! No passwords from your accounts will be revealed. This test will report on accounts that are affected.


Email Exposure Check


Email addresses and identities of your organization can be sought out on the internet by cybercriminals. Once they have this information, they are one step closer to launching an attack via spear phishing or social engineering.


Using the Email Exposure Check will identify which users are most at-risk for these attacks based on their email exposure. This check will search through the world wide web to seek out any compromised emails or employee information followed by whether users have had their account information exposed in thousands of breaches in the past. If their passwords have been breached before on other online accounts, they may have what they need to access your organization!


Finally, you’ll receive a summary report PDF of exposed emails and associated risk levels. This is for sure a tool to try out!


Phishing Reply Test


”91% of successful data breaches started with a spear phishing attack” as noted on KnowBe4’s website. Using the phishing reply test, you can find out what percentage of your employee’s are Phish-prone. See which red flags your users would fall for and guide them to the landing page of your choice. You’ll receive a PDF the next day with charts explaining the results.


Wondering how your organization would respond to a phishing email? Try it out here for free.
