KnowBe4 is a cybersecurity company that provides security awareness training for companies, along with a phishing platform. Its acquisition of Twist and Shout Group will allow the platform to use and help further produce the videos made by the media group, including its security awareness sitcom “Restricted Intelligence.”

“Twist and Shout has done an incredible job creating entertaining, Hollywood-quality employee training videos that cover topics that have historically been pretty dull,” Stu Sjouwerman, CEO and founder of KnowBe4, said in a statement. “They make fun and engaging live action security awareness training videos with relatable characters.”

Twist and Shout Group will now be called “Twist and Shout Communications, a KnowBe4 company” and “Twist and Shout Media, a KnowBe4 company.”

This is one of several international acquisitions KnowBe4 has done in recent years, including companies from Brazil, Australia, Japan, England, the Netherlands, Germany, South Africa and Singapore.
