Stu Sjouwerman, Chief Executive Officer at KnowBe4

KnowBe4, the global provider of security awareness training and simulated phishing platform, kicked off support activities for Cybersecurity Awareness Month in October with a resource kit designed to help IT and Infosec professionals in workplace improve their security posture.

What was the executive’s take on the Awareness Month?

“Cybersecurity Awareness Month provides an exceptional opportunity to share this resource kit with IT professionals and users. These resources aim to help organisations with security awareness training plans and initiatives to educate and recognise the necessity of building a security culture among users. Bad actors continue to attack organisations, small and large, frequently targeting the human as the weakest link,” said Stu Sjouwerman, CEO, KnowBe4.

“Using Cybersecurity Awareness Month to strengthen this layer are essential to better protect our organisations, not only in the month of October but throughout the year.”

The kit includes resources featuring eight interactive training modules and videos like a new interactive training module, “2022 Social Engineering Red Flags”.

The theme for this year’s Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2022 by the National Cybersecurity Alliance is See Yourself in Cyber. The theme empowers individuals and organisations to own their role in always protecting their part of cyberspace– from all places.

If everyone does their part – implementing stronger security practices, raising community awareness, educating vulnerable audiences, or training employees – our interconnected world will be safer and more resilient for everyone.  To download the KnowBe4 Cybersecurity Awareness Month Resource Kit 2022, visit the website.
