New Current Event Phishing Template Categories 
We had a fun idea come up after one of our customers asked a question at the second annual KnowBe4 User Conference. The customer asked, "With all the templates that we have available in Current Events, how can we be sure that our users always get the latest and greatest one?"

Out of that, we came up with the Current Event of the Week category and Current Event of the Month category! Each category will contain a single Current Events or Holiday template, hand-selected by the KnowBe4 Technical Content team each week and month to ensure that your users will receive a high-quality, timely, and relevant template.


Point-of-Failure Landing Page Categories
Did you know we have landing page templates with a Point of Failure Video Training category and a Point of Failure Courses category that offers an additional training component when users fail a simulated phishing test?

These categories include built-in landing page templates with video courses and training modules embedded right into the landing page! These landing page templates contain short training or video modules that you can include in your phishing campaigns that give your users interactive point-of-failure training!
