Buckley Technology Group (BTG) has partnered with KnowBe4, the world’s largest platform for security awareness training, to help clients manage the ongoing problem of social engineering. (Social engineering is the use of deception to manipulate individuals into divulging confidential or personal information that may be used for fraudulent purposes.)

For over 20 years, BTG has been a trusted provider of information security awareness training and testing services for financial institutions. Within the past five years, more financial institutions are realizing social engineering is a very real threat and are seeking solutions to ensure employees are fully trained and tested on how to prevent, recognize, and respond to phishing attacks. Legacy social engineering testing and training methods are no longer effective in handling the sophistication of social engineering attacks today. To ensure your credit union is prepared and protected, BTG has partnered with KnowBe4, offering clients an automated and intuitive approach to managing the threat of social engineering. 

KnowBe4 has a proven record of helping organizations reduce malware infections, reduce data loss, reduce cyber-theft, and increase security awareness. Utilizing KnowBe4’s simulated phishing platform, BTG will manage phishing campaigns through email and phone to test your employees’ ability to recognize and respond appropriately to social engineering threat indicators such as opening attachments, clicking on links, or sharing personal information over the phone. Failure points are immediately made aware to employees and automatically reported on, providing the ability to tailor training programs to each employee or business unit.

As cyber and phishing attacks increase in sophistication and complexity, so must an institution’s information security awareness program. Contact BTG to learn more about the KnowBe4 social engineering testing services.
