CEO at KnowBe4

Stu is the CEO of KnowBe4, InfoSec’s latest Unicorn with a Billion dollar valuation. We have had 25 consecutive record setting quarters. To continue that growth, we are looking for great sales people to join our team. This is my fifth startup. I have decades of experience in IT. My last company was called Sunbelt Software, scaled up to hundreds of staff as co-founder and got repeated Inc 500 and 5000 listings.

Pioneered a new category with KnowBe4. Partnered with Kevin Mitnick and created what is now the world’s largest new-school Security Awareness Training and Simulated Phishing platform. We enable employees to make smarter security decisions and create a “human firewall”.

This game-changing platform instantly gives organizations security awareness training combined with simulated phishing and vishing attacks to inoculate employees against social engineering. A three-time Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant with KnowBe4.
