New KnowBe4 service seeks to curb risky security behaviors

Risky security behaviors are being sought to be reduced by KnowBe4's new SecurityCoach service, which provides human detection and response, as well as real-time security coaching, reports SiliconAngle. SecurityCoach has been developed to harness the human factor in cybersecurity, which has been crucial in social engineering techniques, including phishing and spear-phishing attacks. Existing security stacks are being used by SecurityCoach to facilitate real-time coaching campaign configurations in a bid to allow immediate delivery of alerts related to detected security events, according to KnowBe4. "With SecurityCoach, we are introducing a new product category that automates the delivery of real-time security coaching and advice to help end users enhance their cybersecurity knowledge and strengthen their role in contributing to a strong security culture," said KnowBe4 CEO Stu Sjouwerman. SecurityCoach was revealed only about a month following KnowBe4's announcement of its acquisition by private equity firm Vista Equity Partners in a $4.6 billion deal.
