Overall Satisfaction with KnowBe4 Security Awareness Training

We use it for new hire training (with a security awareness and baseline test modules) as well as monthly phishing tests.

Pros

  • Training videos
  • Up-to-date training
  • Easy reporting
  • Security awareness among employees

Cons

  • Make selection of training modules easier to use
  • Extreme increase in spam reporting
  • Acceptance of this type of training by management
  • Adoption of this product by other divisions with our corporation
We have only used basic company-created training during the New Hire process and annual basic policy review regarding security.

Huge impact: It is up-to-date and very relevant regarding security threats and issues that are current.
We use active directory syncing and the automated training sign-up when an employee is hired. We also train users annually on the Melnick training module. When users are terminated, they are removed from any training modules they have not completed (and active directory will prevent them from being added to any future training). We also have management roles so they can assist in ensuring their employees are completing training.
We use the individual Training module reports so we can send managers their list of users yet to complete training 3 times per month (to ensure all employees are up-to-date on training). I also send the automated KnowBe4 reports out to the management team so they are aware of how this training is affecting our organization. These reports help to solidify the positive impact of the training.
The software is extremely appropriate for a company our size. It provides short monthly videos that keep email, web-based and other security issues in the forefront of our employees' minds. They enjoy the videos and make use of the phishing button to report possible phishing emails.
