Are You Under Attack?
by George McDonald
Chief Officer of Strategic Services

Social engineering attacks continue to be the leading cause of compromised networks and data breaches. Organizations of all sizes are susceptible to these attacks and are vulnerable to social engineering schemes such as phishing, spear phishing, and ransomware attacks because employees continue to be the weakest link in their network security.

To help you address this ongoing battle, your Credit Union Association of the Dakotas has reached an agreement for discounted pricing for Association members with
KnowBe4, the world’s largest security awareness training and simulated phishing platform to help you manage the ongoing problem of social engineering.

Founded by IT and data security specialist Stu Sjouwerman, KnowBe4 helps organizations address the human element of security by raising awareness about ransomware, CEO fraud and other social engineering tactics through a new-school approach to awareness training on security.

Kevin Mitnick, an internationally recognized cybersecurity specialist and KnowBe4's Chief Hacking Officer, helped design the KnowBe4 training based on his well-documented social engineering tactics. Tens of thousands of organizations rely on KnowBe4 to mobilize their end users as the last line of defense.
