Here are a few important fresh content and feature updates to share with you for the month of July.
KNOWBE4 PRODUCT UPDATES
NEW! Recommended Training Suggestions
The KnowBe4 ModStore training library now leverages machine learning to offer informed training suggestions based on the simulated phishing test results of your users. Personalized to your overall organization's Phish-prone percentage, training modules are presented in the KnowBe4 ModStore training library. You can select recommendations and add them to your training campaigns, helping reduce your users’ click rates over time.
Suggested training will appear on your ModStore homepage after the Foundational training section under Phish-Prone Recommendations. Training content will focus on best practices for your users to spot, analyze and report suspicious emails with the goal of improving every user’s Phish-prone percentage.
This new feature is available across all subscription levels
NEW! Learner Dashboard and Performance Metrics
The KnowBe4 Learner Experience (LX) now includes a new Learner Dashboard. When your users login to take their security awareness training, they will land on the new “Dashboard” homepage.
The dashboard is a comprehensive display of a learner’s training activities and simulated phishing test results. You can also choose to enable phishing, risk, and gamification options for the tiles you want to include. As part of the KnowBe4 LX interface, language localization options extend to the Learner Dashboard and are available in 25+ languages.
This new feature is available across all subscription levels.

Three new pieces of KnowBe4 training content were added this month and include:
2020 Security Culture Survey
Available through the KnowBe4 ModStore, the 2020 Security Culture Survey (SCS) measures the sentiments of your users towards security in your organization – the psychological and social aspects that drive social behavior.
This new and improved version includes revised questions based on the analysis of data collected from over 150,000 assessments conducted with the original version first released on the KnowBe4 platform.
New language options provide the ability for you to localize the survey for your organization and include English (US), English (GB), Dutch, and Norwegian. The SCS leverages the CLTRe Security Culture Framework and research-driven measurement platform acquired by KnowBe4 late last year.
