Digital security concept

Phishing attacks remain the top attack risk facing organizations. As a result, educating and training employees is a critical part of a robust cybersecurity platform. CNA policyholders can take advantage of Cofense’s world-class, human-driven training tools to include a fully functional-learning management system and more than 20 cyber-related computer-based training modules. Cofense’s Learning Management System (LMS) helps administrators manage content and ongoing education about cyber security risks, meanwhile the company’s Computer Based Training (CBT) educates users on today’s biggest threats with interactive modules. This two-pronged approach empowers users to input their own lessons and manage Cofense and non-Cofense learning materials all in the same place.

CNA policyholders will get access to all Cofense solutions at a preferred rate, and will be eligible for a Cofense Managed Phishing Assessment to provide a benchmark of their current phishing risk and resiliency. This assessment helps companies to improve their threat identification, mitigation and response operations.

“Our relationship with CNA brings together multiple types of risk management services. We are helping to create a comprehensive solution for businesses to remain prepared and competitive,” said Rohyt Belani, CEO and Co-Founder of Cofense. “Working together seamlessly with the other components of CNA CyberPrep, we are confident that our security awareness solutions can help CNA’s policyholders fight phishing threats.”

“In today’s technology-driven world, it is clear that cyber threats represent a critical and growing risk,” said Brian Robb, Underwriting Director and Cyber Industry Leader, CNA. “Businesses must stay ahead of emerging cyber risks and the security threats they pose, and we want to make sure CNA policyholders have access to the best services and technology available. Cofense is an industry leader in phishing defense solutions and security awareness training, which will deliver great value to our policyholders.”
