Social Engineering Indicators™ (SEI) patented technology, turns every simulated phishing email into a tool IT can use to instantly train employees. When a user clicks on any of the 12,000+ KnowBe4 simulated phishing emails, they are routed to a landing page that includes a dynamic copy of that phishing email showing all the red flags.

If an employee picks up the USB drive, plugs it in their workstation, and opens the file, it will "call home" and report the fail. Should a user also enable the macros in the file, then additional data is also tracked and made available in the admin console.
