As a security leader, you’re faced with a tough choice.

Even as you increase your budget for sophisticated security software, your exposure to cybercrime keeps going up!

IT security seems to be a race between effective technology and clever attack methods. However, there’s an often-overlooked security layer that can significantly reduce your organisation’s attack surface: New-school security awareness training.

The 2021 Study analysed a data set of 6.6 million users across 23,400 organisations with over 15.5 million simulated phishing security tests. In this report, research from our partner KnowBe4 highlights employee Phish-Prone™ percentages by industry, revealing at-risk users that are susceptible to phishing or social engineering attacks.  Taking it a step further, the research also reveals radical drops in careless clicking after 90 days and 12 months of new-school security awareness training.
