Overall Satisfaction with KnowBe4 Security Awareness Training

We use it district-wide as a tool to help identify scams and spoofs.
  • Phishhook button is invaluable.
  • Spear phishing is difficult to spot.
  • End user training is easy but helpful.
  • Reporting dashboard has a lot of good info.
  • I would love a "wizard mode" for setting up campaigns.
  • No SSO - it hammers my domain but I can't assign users to roles.
  • More accessible training/documentation on the admin side. I know it exists, my rep has sent links... I just don't know how to get to it myself.
  • A community. Share your wins, losses, and best campaigns.
  • Went from 30%+ click rate down to around 5%.
  • Much better security in general--lots of real scams reported!
  • Pointed us for more targeted training for "problem" users.
Nothing I've seen has the integration (the phishhook button) and extreme targeting of [KnowBe4 Security Awareness Training]. I haven't seen a lot of other products that [are] this well built, easy to spin up.

It has been huge. K12 education isn't great about setting security awareness as a priority. [KnowBe4 Security Awareness Training] makes it a seamless experience for end-users and automagic on the admin side.
It's a manual process to add admin users, which is both unnecessary work and, ironically, a security risk since it doesn't follow their domain account. I would love to see some kind of SSO integration where I can grab [a] group or OU and make them users.
Click rate is big for us. The ability to have a quick reference where our issues are, where we are in campaigns, and what's our weakest point as far as content.
It is dynamite for basic end-users. I'm much happier to see a click on a "this was a KnowBe4 test" link than have to reset accounts! As a K12 tech, I'm always thinking about students. While I would love some basic training for the younger set, I don't think this applies below high school.
