Last Wednesday, the KnowBe4 family celebrated everyone's favorite holiday, Halloween! It's no big secret that KnowBe4 loves Halloween, and this year did not disappoint! In addition to Halloween, we also celebrated the last day of the month with a delicious catered lunch from Fresh Kitchen! Who doesn't love Halloween and good food?
Most readers will probably be familiar with the story of bank robber Willie Sutton who, after being nailed by the cops, was asked why he robbed the bank. His answer (undoubtedly delivered in the most deadpan voice one can imagine): "Because that's where the money is."
Although criminals have gone high tech since the days of that old fashioned, pistol-packing bank robber, their motivations remain essentially unchanged. Over the past month or so we've been reminded of that very basic truth while watching the surge in phishing emails targeting payroll operations at our customers who use the free KnowBe4 Phish Alert Button (PAB). Why target payroll? Because that's where the money is.
