KnowBe4 Launches Holiday Cybersecurity Resource Kit

KnowBe4, the provider of the world’s largest security awareness training and simulated phishing platform, announced it has launched a Holiday Cybersecurity Resource Kit with complimentary resources and courseware aimed to help protect end users against holiday-themed cyber scams.

Cybercriminals are preying on victims even more this year with the supply chain affected by COVID-19 and the lack of ability to find enough workers. The shortage in goods is a prime target for bad actors to play into people’s heightened sense of emotions and stress levels even further by unleashing their social engineering attacks. The FBI has a list of tips to protect against holiday scams.

“Any email or post that causes an immediate, strong emotional response or threatens harm if you do not respond or take some sort of action should be scrutinised very carefully, especially during the holiday season” said Stu Sjouwerman, CEO, KnowBe4. “Ensure to double check the protections on invoices and secure payment services before rendering any sort of payment for good or services. We hope that this kit full of complimentary resources provides an added layer of protection for end users throughout the holidays.”
