How to Bring KnowBe4 Training to Slack

January 16, 2023

Heakka provides a direct connection between security teams and employees in Slack. This connection makes it simple to share security knowledge with employees when and where they work. Admins can subscribe to Haekka content, which is fully customizable, create their content from scratch, or bring their existing training content to Slack with Haekka.

In the last scenario, bringing existing training content to Slack with Haekka, some customers want to bring security awareness content from vendors like Living Security, Ninjio, or KnowBe4. Haekka is super flexible in the type of content you can deliver to employees in Slack and fully supports training content from other security awareness vendors.

Bringing KnowBe4 Training to Slack

KnowBe4 is a leading security awareness training vendor. It offers a large catalog of security awareness content as well as phishing simulation. And, KnowBe4 recently launched event-driven, real-time training called SecurityCoach, which is similar to Haekka Workflows in that both deliver real-time training based on user behavior.

KnowBe4 allows for the export of security awareness training content for delivery via LMS systems. This export functionality enables KnowBe4 customers to obtain training content that can then be assigned and delivered in Slack with Haekka.

According to KnowBe4, training content can be exported as either video or SCORM files. Haekka supports both and can ensure both are formatted correctly in Slack.
