Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18) – The Aquarius sign tends to be intellectual and progressive, with a strong desire for community. Given these traits, an Aquarius may be the perfect person to manage your organization’s security awareness training for employees!

There are several styles of security awareness training, from automated phishing campaigns to interactive, gamified training like an escape room exercise. Digital products, like KnowBe4, aim to reduce the risk of human error by exposing your employees to the types of attacks that would potentially compromise their information.
