KnowBe4 Introduces New “Social Engineering Indicators” Training Method

SEI_landing_Page.jpgToday, we are introducing a new training method that IT managers can use to better manage the continually increasing social engineering threats.

Social Engineering Indicators (SEI) turns every simulated phishing email into a tool you can use to dynamically train your employees how to spot red flags within any email. If your users overlook these red flags, it can lead to a security breach or ransomware infection.

The state of end-user security is in serious decline. Phishing emails continue to skyrocket  (Q2 2016 had more identified phishing attacks than any other quarter in history) and social engineering is the number one tactic cybercriminals use to get past network security software.

Today, 93 percent of phishing emails contain ransomware and are one of the top concerns of security professionals.  Antivirus can’t keep up,  Virus Bulletin recently reported that proactive antivirus detection rates have dramatically declined over the past 12 months.

That’s where this new patent-pending technology helps manage the problem. If a user clicks on a KnowBe4 SEI-enabled simulated phishing attack, they are routed to a landing page that includes a dynamic copy of that phishing email showing all the red flags. Users can then immediately see the potential pitfalls and learn to spot those indicators in the future.

Old-school security awareness training is ineffective. Once-a-year breakroom training with coffee and donuts doesn’t keep the bad guys out. Users need effective training and frequent simulated phishing attacks to recognize the clever tactics the bad guys use in social engineering. Employees are the last line of defense against cybercriminals.  By creating a human firewall that can identify threats and avoid them, we can manage the problem much more effectively. SEI is a new-school approach toward security awareness training that helps end users learn how to make better security decisions.
