Stu recently made a blog post about the top clicked on phishing topics based on our customer’s end-users in the first quarter of 2017:

KnowBe4 customers run millions of phishing tests per year, and we report frequently on the top-clicked phishing topics so that our customers know what the highest-risk phishing templates are. That way they can inoculate their employees against the most prevalent social engineering attacks.
