Legal technology consulting and services firm, Wilson Allen, today announced that it had received the Partner to Watch – North America Award from KnowBe4 as part of the 2022 KnowBe4 Americas Partner Program Awards during its annual KB4-CON event.
The firm received the award for its success in promoting KnowBe4’s security awareness training program, which forms part of Wilson Allen’s comprehensive security and compliance training for its law firm clients.
John Attinger, Director, Wilson Allen, said increasing awareness around information and network security is crucial for law firms.
“Ensuring information is adequately protected is a constantly moving challenge that requires ongoing vigilance in the workplace,” he said. “The KnowBe4 security awareness program helps employees understand malicious activities that can compromise security, such as spam, phishing, malware and ransomware, as well as other unscrupulous practices that can trick users into making security mistakes or releasing confidential information.”
Attinger said KnowBe4’s Kevin Mitnick Security Awareness Training product complements Wilson Allen’s information safety program, which is specifically targeted to law firms and includes data privacy, HIPAA, GDPR, CCPA and other professional conduct and compliance topics.
“This award acknowledges the hard work and investment we have put into training and certifying our personnel in the KnowBe4 product. There is a high awareness and need in the market for security training and we have delivered it successfully because we are trusted experts in information security issues as they relate to law firms particularly.”
The KnowBe4 Americas Partner Program Awards recognize the top KnowBe4 channel partners regionally for sales growth and excellence. They highlight organizations that evangelize the human factor of security and implement marketing innovation.
“We are very excited to recognize the winners of our 2022 Partner Program Awards from the Americas,” said Tony Jennings, EVP international & global channel sales, KnowBe4. “Each of these partners continues to demonstrate their commitment to delighting their customers and enabling employees everywhere to make smarter security decisions every day. We value all of our global partners, but this group of honorees have demonstrated a level of excellence worth celebrating.”
