KnowBe4 Recognized by Gartner as a Leader

I’ve always been proud of Savvy’s partnership with KnowBe4, the world’s premier anti-phishing and security awareness training company. For years, we have delivered KnowBe4’s security awareness training campaigns to law firms, which are increasingly under attack from cybercriminals around the world. Law firms are like banks in that they store a nearly limitless supply of what hackers want: banks store money; law firms store sensitive personal information.

KnowBe4 has helped Savvy’s clients reduce their exposure by huge percentages leading to increased confidence in their IT departments that the firm is doing all it can to secure their clients’ valuable documents and information.

Well now, more people are getting on the “I-Love-KnowBe4” bandwagon!

Gartner has placed KnowBe4 in its “Magic Quadrant” for Security Awareness Computer-Based Training in 2017. Here is what the “presser” from KnowBe4 says:

“Gartner has positioned KnowBe4 as a leader in the security awareness CBT market, based on our ability to execute and completeness of vision.

As the fastest-growing company within this market, our mission to train employees to make smarter security decisions within client organizations has been successful using world-class training and simulated phishing to improve their security posture and mitigate risk.”

More about Gartner: “Gartner, Inc. is the world’s leading research and advisory company. We help business leaders across all major functions in every industry and enterprise size with the objective insights they need to make the right decisions.”

I have written several times about KnowBe4’s ease, convenience and solid results. Their security awareness training for law firms rolls out in three easy steps: 1) Train your users, 2) Phish your users, 3) Use the results to train and phish again. One law firm that we trained using KnowBe4’s platform went from a 20% fail rate to 4% in just four weeks.

Now, I thought I’d share a few more of the resources available through KnowBe4. Did you know that they offer several free tests that you can use to evaluate your law firm on everything from phishing to ransomware attacks? They include:
