KnowBe4, OneLogin aim to set new Guinness World Record

Cybersecurity companies KnowBe4 and OneLogin have partnered to set a new Guinness World Records title for the most views of a cybersecurity lesson video on YouTube in 24 hours. The record will be attempted on 15 October 2021, during Cybersecurity Awareness Month, with the video available to view for a 24-hour period. This will be an official Guinness World Records title if the minimum 1500 views is met.

The Guinness World Records attempt will see KnowBe4 and OneLogin provide a 45-minute training session that will be live-streamed via YouTube. The training will be split into three parts, with KnowBe4 and OneLogin each providing expertise on a specific area relating to ransomware before opening the session for Q&A with the viewers. It will be short, to-the-point and informative. The complete recording will then be made available on the Security Serious YouTube channel for a further 23 hours for security professionals around the world to view.

The target audience will be C-level executives, such as CISOs and CIOs, as well as system administrators and other security professionals to help them enhance security awareness within their own organisations. The aim is to bridge the gap between security professionals and the rest of the workforce. The training is open to all members of the public; all attendees must register in advance to have a chance to win an official Guinness World Records participation award. Only the first 5000 people that register ahead of the event will receive an official Guinness World Record participation certificate.

Javvad Malik, Lead Security Awareness Advocate for KnowBe4, acknowledged that with the rise in cybersecurity attacks around the world, building up human firewalls with security awareness training has never been more critical. Therefore, the education provided is designed to help cybersecurity experts train non-security professionals in the working environment on how to prepare for a ransomware attack.

“Being a part of setting a Guinness World Records title for a security awareness training session is such a thrill for KnowBe4, especially when we have the opportunity to partner with companies like OneLogin to achieve such an accomplishment,” said Malik.

Niamh Muldoon, Global Data Protection Officer at OneLogin, added that there has never been a more important time to guide enterprises through the processes of planning for such an event. “OneLogin is honoured to have the opportunity to partner with KnowBe4 on this first-of-a-kind project and look forward to helping organisations across the globe to prepare for the worst security outcomes,” said Muldoon.
