Overall Satisfaction with KnowBe4 Security Awareness Training

We use KnowBe4 to train our users about the risks of using computer systems. We specifically focus on phishing and social engineering attacks but also use courses in HR areas such as anti-fraud, anti-harassment, etc.
  • Detailed information about social engineering
  • Good examples of phishing attacks
  • Excellent phishing simulation system
  • User sync with our directory is pretty bad and difficult to maintain
  • Difficult to run year-to-year (repeating) campaigns and keep track
  • Worked well for training our users, overall elevated awareness in our company.

Would you buy KnowBe4 Security Awareness Training again?


While the overall system is good and the content is very diversified, we are having a very hard time maintaining and syncing our user directory. We are not getting good support from KnowBe4's support team. This has been going on for months, and I am considering switching to a different vendor.
