KnowBe4 Inc releases new security training tests in twenty-six languages

KnowBe4 Inc., the most popular integrated platform for security awareness training and simulated phishing tests, released its Kevin Mitnick Security Awareness Training in twenty-six language versions. The interactive, on-demand computer-based training covers high-risk topics and how to identify red flags such as the current ransomware epidemic, the W-2 scam and CEO email fraud which are costing the economy billions of dollars.

The released languages include Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Hebrew, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Swedish, Polish, Finnish, Hungarian, Norwegian, Arabic and multiple dialects of key languages.

An updated FBI alert issued in June, 2016 warned of a massive increase in CEO fraud to the tune of $3.1 billion (£2.3 billion), up from $2.3 billion noted in April, 2016. Companies are now realising they cannot keep doing the same old annual awareness training, as threats are evolving much faster.

KnowBe4’s CEO Stu Sjouwerman stated: “Employees are the weakest link in your network security and you need effective security awareness training to keep on top of furiously innovating cybercrime. The new features we are announcing were previously out of reach for IT managers with limited budget, and we have worked hard to make effective training and frequent simulated phishing affordable for these companies.”

KnowBe4’s Chief Hacking Officer Kevin Mitnick stated, “Our new EZXploit feature truly assesses whether your business can be exploited by the bad guys. Just clicking on a link sent in email alone doesn’t mean your business can be successfully phished. The true test is to determine whether the user can be exploited. EZXploit allows you evaluate that risk.”
