Chambersburg, Pennsylvania – January 6, 2022

This is only the beginning of a mutually beneficial relationship that will have positive channel outcomes for both organizations.”

KnowBe4 impacts organizations’ human firewall with awareness training that includes baseline testing, user training, and automated simulated phishing attacks for businesses of all sizes to build a more resilient and secure organization.
