Free Tools Update! User Comments for the Phish Alert Button
We are excited to announce the availability of KnowBe4's enhanced Phish Alert Button (PAB) for Microsoft 365 with the new User Comments feature!
KnowBe4's complimentary Phish Alert Button gives your users a safe way to report suspicious emails and empowers your employees to take an active role in managing the problem of phishing and other types of malicious emails.
With this new version of the PAB, you can now enable your users to provide additional information when they report suspicious emails to your incident response (IR) team. The new feedback option gives your IR team more details to help them identify, analyze and prioritize user-reported messages even faster.
How the User Comments Feature for PAB works:
When your users click the PAB to report a message, a pop-up window will appear where they can choose whether the message should be Phish, Spam or Unknown.
- Phish: Emails sent by cybercriminals to entice users to click on a link or give up personal or sensitive information
- Spam: Emails that are typically sent from companies trying to sell your users a product or service
- Unknown: Your users can select this option when they are unsure whether an email is clean and legitimate, a potential threat or spam

KnowBe4 – Pretexting: Setting You Up for the Scam
Cybercriminals are more successful when your employees let their guards down. An effective pretexting campaign creates a scenario that gets your users to lower their defenses, making them more likely to divulge information or take an action that they shouldn't. This Mobile-First training module identifies the main elements of effective pretexting and provides best practices for reducing the likelihood of your users falling victim to one of these scams.
Thirteen new pieces of training content added this month. The KnowBe4 Pretexting: Setting You Up for the Scam training module is available across the Gold, Platinum and Diamond subscription levels.
The Security Awareness Company – January Newsletter
The concept behind "365 security" offers a simple way to view the end goal of awareness programs: encourage people to make security a part of everything they do. We're kicking off the new year with that as our resolution.
In this month's edition, 365 Security, we take your users back to the basics, identify a few security resolutions that work for everyone, and address why security policy is such a vital element of every organization. The newsletter and questions are both available in 18 languages.
Ten new pieces of training content added this month. Training content from the Security Awareness Company, including the January newsletter, is available at the Diamond subscription level.
