Awareness and Training

This policy applies to all employees and contractors.

Awareness means putting someoneΒ΄s attention on security challenges. Training means giving people the right level of security skills for their job.


At Rocket.Chat, we can build on a tech-savvy team that has a broad knowledge of security topics and specializations. Therefore we focus on raising an awareness on new things that happen. Goal: Keep all members of Rocket.Chat appraised of new and current developments in the security landscape

We count on the widely respected KnowBe4 platform, from Kevin Mitnick, to build our Security Awareness program. The program is focused on 2 main steps: training and security tests

How to report a phishing email

In we use a phishing report integration from KnowBe4, called Phish Alert Button. It is a orange hook add-on integrate with your corporate Gmail that is already pre-installed in every platform that you access your email.

Always use the integration to report suspected phishing email. If it a simulated email you will view a message congratulating your for finding out the simulated campaing. If it a potential real phishing email the email will be send to the security team for further analysis.
