Phishing attacks are a major challenge for businesses. It can be difficult for companies to combat these threats, as although technology exists to remove phishing attempts from inboxes, humans can easily be spoofed by an email which appears genuine. KnowBe4’s security awareness training allows organisations to combat phishing attempts by educating their employees. This empowers the workforce to become more security aware generally and reduces the chance that an employee will fall for a phishing attempt.
