GIBBSBORO, NJ – July 19th 2016 – As part of their continual effort to drive business development and enhance the security for customers, Praxis Data Systems has launched a partnership with KnowBe4! KnowBe4 is the world’s most popular integrated platform for online security awareness training combined with simulated phishing attacks, helping thousands of organizations to manage the continuing problem of online user security.
Praxis Data Systems has long promoted the idea that regardless of how much time or money is spent on security systems and solutions, employees and user-error continue to be weakest links in the security efforts of any organization. Data security is an incredibly important facet of any business, especially in the financial industry. Prompted by the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council’s (FFIEC), banks and credit unions are required to train employees in cyber-security strategies and they are encouraged to share this cyber-risk education with customers. Because the weak link in IT security is the end-user, individual security awareness training is a key defense against fraud and identity theft. Providing education for employees AND customers on threats like phishing, social engineering and general information security practices is among the top agenda items for financial institutions.
Praxis serves numerous clients in the financial sector and are incredibly excited to be partnering with KnowBe4 to provide security training resources directly to their clients. Different size organizations cope with different problems, but all businesses can benefit from keeping their individual tech-users on their toes. Thanks to their partnership with KnowBe4, Praxis can now work with clients to develop an awareness training program that caters to each client’s specific business needs. This proactive approach will help Praxis clients ensure that employees understand the mechanisms of spam, phishing, spear-phishing, malware and social engineering and can apply this knowledge to their day to day work.
KnowBe4’s Enterprise Awareness Training Program provides learners with a comprehensive new-school approach that integrates baseline testing. Educational modules include the use of mock attacks, engaging interactive web-based training and continuous assessment through simulated phishing, vishing and smishing attacks. Praxis firmly believes that arming individual users with this practical knowledge helps to build a more resilient, secure and compliant organization overall.

Praxis CEO Harry Srolovitz is incredibly excited about this new partnership and what it will mean for clients who decide to utilize the technology. “For a truly comprehensive security posture, every organization must educate and train their employees to be aware of email and web-based threats and how to avoid a breach resulting from a simple “click”.
If you’d like to connect your business-minded audience with more information about how tech users need to be continually trained and tested, reach out to Harry Srolovitz at Praxis Data Systems. A quick interview with Harry can help connect your audience with information about KnowB4 and keep security awareness top of mind to minimize business risks involved with social engineering, spear phishing and ransomware attacks.
