[ARCHIVED] Cybersecurity Awareness

The IT Department has partnered with KnowBe4 to improve our cybersecurity awareness. The program is designed to increase our ability to recognize and avoid dangerous email threats. Staff were challenged to recognize the red flags of social engineering in seven key areas of an email. The program includes simulated phishing emails, training, and easy to understand tips and tricks. During the first simulated trial with members of the Town, 86% of staff recognized the illegitimate email and responded appropriately. Based on KnowBe4’s data, with training and education, we expect to see this baseline percentage increase dramatically. Enfield Public Schools staff will begin this program next.
