Phishing attacks continue to be one of the biggest cyberthreats faced by businesses around the world – and the COVID-19 pandemic and ensuing chaos have only made the situation more dire. In March 2020, phishing attacks related to coronavirus went up 667% from the previous month. 51% of companies experienced more phishing attacks due to employees working remotely. Even the SANS Institute – a U.S. company specializing in information security and cybersecurity training – isn’t immune; a phishing email opened by just one employee resulted in the theft of 28,000 records.
That’s why the team at Avalon Cyber is proud to announce our partnership with KnowBe4, provider of the world’s largest security awareness training and simulated phishing platform, which helps companies manage the ongoing problem of social engineering.
KnowBe4 started out as a phishing test platform and has evolved into a robust security awareness training suite of products that help reduce malware infections, data loss, and potential cybertheft. They’ve also invested significant resources to develop Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) applications that can be used to help businesses cut down audit time and manage compliance and risk projects faster than ever.
KnowBe4’s mission is to enable employees to make smarter security decisions every day. They accomplish this through their powerful, yet engaging and easy-to-use, platform that allows businesses of all sizes to train and phish employees to see their “Phish-prone percentage” improve over time – and get measurable results.

“The human element in today’s threat landscape is now a company’s last line of defense when it comes to cybersecurity. Lack of security awareness or underperforming security awareness programs are putting businesses and their employees at heightened levels of cyber risk, especially in our current climate,” says Kyle Cavalieri, president of Avalon Cyber. “We are proud to partner with KnowBe4 because of their ‘new school’ approach to facilitating security awareness training, and for providing state-of-the-art technology and resources, which allow our clients to detect suspicious emails and learn how to effectively respond to those threats.”
