KnowBe4 launches cybersecurity awareness training kit

KnowBe4, the provider of one of the world’s largest security awareness training and simulated phishing platforms, has launched a resource kit in recognition of Cybersecurity Awareness Month in October. The resource kit contains a guide for the kit and campaign ideas to help IT admins get started, a weekly training planner, two free training videos, infographics, tip sheets and desktop backgrounds. The two free training videos — ‘Your role: internet security and you’ and ‘2021 social engineering red flags’ — are available in a range of different languages.

Stu Sjouwerman, CEO of KnowBe4, said these cybersecurity resources are aimed to help with training plans and other security awareness initiatives in recognition of Cybersecurity Awareness Month in October. “Malicious actors are not slowing their attacks on everything from critical infrastructure to small businesses; therefore, organisations must educate their employees by making them aware of the latest threats and attack vectors. Cybersecurity Awareness Month is an initiative where we can focus our efforts for the month of October, while also putting forth such efforts to better protect our organisations year-round,” Sjouwerman said.

The theme for Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2021 by the National Cybersecurity Alliance is Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart. The theme encourages individuals and organisations to own their role in protecting their part of cyberspace. If everyone does their part — implementing stronger security practices, raising community awareness, educating vulnerable audiences or training employees — the interconnected world will be safer and more resilient for everyone.
