PAB-Basic UseNew Phish Alert Button Video has been added to help train your users on how to use the Phish Alert Button. 

In this module, users learn about the Phish Alert Button (PAB), an email plugin that gives your users a safe way to handle actual or potential phishing emails. This module is the shortest version of this training and assumes that you have done training on how to handle emails before being assigned this training.

This training module is available across all subscription levels.

Two new training modules were added to the Criminal Justice Information Services Security Series (CJIS): Level 2 and Level 3 Training. 

CJIS Modules

CJIS Level 2 security training supplements the basic Level 1 course. It is designed to satisfy the FBI/CJIS requirement for employee training within 6 months of hiring for to understand the role of a Level 2 worker in protecting CJI.

CJIS Level 3 security training supplements the Level 1 and Level 2 courses. It is designed to satisfy the FBI/CJIS requirement for employee training within 6 months of hiring to understand the role of a worker with Level 3 access in protecting CJI.


One new training module was added to the Privileged User Security Series: Linux Administration. 

This course covers several important Linux security aspects, including login security, file permissions, why you should never “run as root,” why and how to watch your command history and other best practice tips. This course is designed to give you a basic overview of Linux security, which can be a very complex and advanced topic. It is intended for newer Linux admins or those interested in getting started with Linux administration.

Pretexting Training

 A new video module is now available called KnowBe4 Pretexting - Fake IT Attack. 

In this video module Kevin Mitnick (world renowned security consultant, public speaker and author) and Rachel Tobac (social engineer and the CEO / Co-founder of SocialProof Security) role play a social engineering attack using pretexting.

Pretexting is a form of social engineering where the attacker lies to obtain restricted information. In this attack, Kevin explains how he is able to steal the local password and the password for the HR system by pretending to be a member of the IT team.

All these KnowBe4 courses are available at the Gold, Platinum, and Diamond subscription levels.

A selfie in the office in front of a seemingly insignificant background, shared with others. In it, third parties can see business rooms, identities and internal documents. If the next step is hacking a smartphone, tablet or computer, perpetrators could use the microphone or camera to record conversations or spy on business rooms.
