New Roger Grimes Data-Driven Defense Series
KnowBe4’s data-driven defense evangelist, Roger Grimes, covers data-driven computer defense as conceptualized in his book, A Data-Driven Computer Defense: A Way to Improve Any Computer Defense. This is great training content for your IT or InfoSec staff!
An Introduction to Data-Driven Defense
A data-driven computer defense is a common sense set of strategies to more efficiently put the right defenses, in the right places, in the right amounts, against the right threats. In the first module, Roger introduces the overall concepts of a risk-analyzed, data-driven computer defense.
Hackers and Why They Hack
Becoming more familiar with your opponent is a great starting point when it comes to hackers. The reality is, most hackers are very normal people with normal intelligence. In this module, Roger explores the types of hackers out there and their motivations.
All KnowBe4 content highlighted this month is available at the Gold, Platinum, and Diamond subscription levels.
The Security Awareness Company (SAC)
SAC added seven new pieces of training content to the ModStore this month and include:
July 2020 Security Awareness Newsletter
In the July edition, we take a look at The Trust Issue. In our personal lives, we trust organizations and entities with our confidential data. In our work lives, that trust is reciprocated by our consumers and clients. In both cases, cybercriminals and scammers attempt to gain and use our trust against us.
This month's newsletter focuses on why it’s vital to stay alert and understand how and why people fall for scams. A set of scavenger hunt questions are also available to help reinforce learning for your employees.
This series from SAC shares dramatized interviews, based on true stories, to help you avoid falling victim to a cyber attack.
In this episode, a victim talks about how she fell for a Zoom video conference scam via a spoofed email.
The series trailer is also available along with the first two videos: Confessions of a Social Engineer and Confessions of a Vishing Victim.
New SAC Micro-Modules
These short, easy to digest micro-modules provide insight and security intelligence applicable for every organization.
- Security Myths Busted
Believing certain myths can be devastating to your information security. This video discredits five common security myths while also providing the right intelligence to keep you and your information safe from cyber threats.
- Join the Craze of the Passphrase
When protecting your personal and professional information, it's better to have passphrases to secure an application. This video is a fun introduction on the passphrase and why it's better to use than a password.
- To Click or Not to Click
Emails containing malicious links are one of the largest threats in the digital world. Whether on your laptop, phone, or tablet, the extra few moments it takes to verify a link could save you and your organization from an attack. Learn the best practices for hovering over a link before you click.
